Learn how to get a professionally finished look on your knits during this workshop. We will cover the three different types of seams you’ll encounter when you put together your pieces, plus you’ll get tons of extra tips like how to weave in tails so they don’t come loose or peek through the front of your work.
Technique Requirements: knit/purl, cast on/bind off
US 8 (5mm) knitting needle, worsted weight yarn.
Swatches 1 and 2: Cast on 28 stitches Row 1 (RS): knit 28 Row 2 (WS): purl 14, knit 14. Repeat these last 2 rows for 6" and bind off. If you have time and would like to save examples of the seams you’ve worked rather than pulling them out to practice other seams, make an additional 2 swatches in this same way.
Swatch 3: Cast on 28 stitches. Row 1 (RS): knit Row 2 (WS): purl Row 3: bind off 3 stitches, knit to the end of the row. Row 4: purl. Repeat rows 3 and 4 until 4 sts remain, bind off.
Materials: scissors, large eye bent-tip tapestry needle (such a Chibi by Clover), scrap yarn in worsted weight in a contrasting color
