Introduction to Short Rows 
Ann Weaver 
Nov 2  (Sat) 9am – 12pm 


Learn to knit short rows three ways: German, wrap and turn, and Japanese! In this workshop, students will work on the Short Row Sampler cowl, an easy pattern that provides students a chance to learn and practice three ways of working short rows. Then, students can compare the results of the three methods and evaluate their benefits and drawbacks. Never be intimidated by short rows again! Skills needed: Casting on and working in the round; ability to read a basic pattern Skills learned: German, Japanese, and wrap and turn short rows with full confidence and joy.

Homework: Begin your cowl. Follow the directions under INSTRUCTIONS on page 3 of the pattern until you have worked the 5-round welt, then knit 3 rounds. We’ll get right to the short rows in class.


About the Instructor


When she is not traveling to teach knitting workshops, Ann Weaver lives in Baltimore and works as a writer, editor, and bartender. Ann has created things her whole life. She learned to knit when she was seven, learned to read a pattern at 22 and started sharing her designs through various forms of publication in 2007. Since graduating from New York University with majors in Art and English and a graduate degree from Harvard in Assyriology, Ann has gained many meaningful experiences along the way, such as becoming a teaching fellow and Akkadian instructor,  barbacking, and even trying her hand at commercial bread baking, among other things. She is always looking for a new adventure. Ann’s design work reflects this quest for adventure; while retaining a clean, wearable aesthetic, Weaverknits designs experiment with asymmetry, unusual color and yarn combinations, and androgyny.

You can find her knitwear designs on Ravelry and follow her adventures in property ownership, her beloved furry friends, and her art & design work on Instagram.
