Video Tip: Using Short-Rows To Shape Cables


In the Spring 2009 issue of Knits, Kristin Omdahl introduced you to the concept of using short rows and lace together to create patterns that wrap around the curve of a circle–in the issue, she shows you how to plan and knit a lace shawl, the Sweet Lily Shawl, using the technique.

Short rows can be used to curve all kinds of patterned fabrics, though. Learn how to make cables move around a curve by watching this video from Knitting Daily TV Series 100 Episode 106.

Once you've discovered you love curving cables, check out Teva Durham's Concentric Vest from the Fall 2007 issue of Knits, now available in the Interweave Store.

And be sure to read Kristin Omdahl's article on short rows and lace in our Spring 2009 issue of Interweave Knits–if you can't find it in your local yarn shop, you can order it here.

What's on Sandi's needles? I am hopping back and forth between projects–cables one day, lace the next, socks after that. I think I'm getting antsy for spring!
