Finishing, Tips & Techniques
Class Details:
Yup: we’re going to cut our knitting, no w(h)ine required. Be it stranded or plain work, cut steeks are (if you’ll allow for the pun) a shortcut for knitting in the round and can accommodate design aspects that might not be possible otherwise. But before we touch our scissors, we’ll stabilize our work in a few different ways, and explore finished (or not!) edges for after they’ve been cut. I’ll then show you my favorite closure options for cardigan sweaters including button bands, i-cord edgings, and zippers. Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; working in the round; have knit a few accessories
Students will bring to class a completed 6" stockinette cuff of 48 stitches. It is optional to have used color work, plain knitting is fine. Completed projects needing steeked finishing also welcome for consultation!
Supplies for Class:
Homework and leftover yarn, contrasting yarn, needles used for work and one size down from work, crochet hook of similar size, scissors,
