Finishing
Class Details:
Learn to give your projects a professional finish. This class will cover all the topics needed to make a beautiful finished project. Learn to create clean, straight seams using mattress stitch. Invisibly weave in your ends using duplicate stitch. Learn bind-off methods including 3-needle bind-off and Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off. Practice grafting using Kitchener stitch, and get information about blocking. You worked hard on that project; finish it flawlessly. To help support your finishing after you leave the class, I’ll provide you with a booklet of photo tutorials for every technique you’ll learn. Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease
