Millcast Episode 39
By: Amanda & Peggy
Change of plans! Rather than recording on Monday from the Cape, we’re recording on Friday before, during, and after our Open House. We had Ona Woldten, pattern designer of the Tørkle which we’re knitting for the KAL, in the mill to talk about her patterns. We hope you were able to make it and mark your calendars for the next date: Friday, Sept 1st.
Ona’s notes about short-rows for the Tørkle:
Regarding short-rows, I just use a very simple wrap and turn - not German short-rows, or Japanese short-rows.... (Wikipedia) I also DO NOT pick up my stitches, although people have asked me this and I say, if that is what they are familiar with, to go ahead and do it. It’s just not what I’ve been doing. I don’t mind seeing a bit of the lacy effect that is produced by gaps that are created when making the wraps and turns. As long as it is consistent, I find that it works beautifully along the edge of those shapes. Here is another link - I am using Wrapless - Simple Short Rows according to this link.
