The finishing process is an important part of knitting: It can make the difference between knits that look okay and knits that look truly polished. Take your knitting to the next level by learning a variety of finishing skills and other tips and tricks. You will learn how to:
Invisibly seam your knits, both along vertical and horizontal edges
Expertly weave in ends in different stitch textures
Pick up stitches along both vertical and horizontal edges (for collars, button bands, sock gussets, etc)
Technique Requirements: knit/purl, cast on/bind off, have knit a few accessories
Please knit 3 squares in the following fashion: Using light-colored, smooth worsted-weight yarn (example: Berroco Ultra Wool) and US7 needles, cast on 25 stitches. Knit in stockinette stitch until you have a square. Bind off in pattern.
US7 knitting needles, more of the yarn you used for the squares, worsted-weight yarn in a contrasting color, a darning needle (I prefer metal bent-tip ones, but you can bring whichever kind you like), scissors.
