Finishing, Knitting, Tips & Techniques
Class Details:

Great knitting is a sum of small parts, and a knitting pattern cannot always cover everything. We will be looking a variety of refinements for the detailing and finish of your pieces. We will use an easy provisional cast-on technique, work a facing, incorporate a selection of turning rows, and fuse the facing to the main fabric. Preparation will be made for a seam involving no bulk or fabric loss, make an impeccable double-knit pocket and trim it with a choice of decorative pocket tops. All of this will topped with a modified bind-off technique that improves ease and speed, and adds elasticity to the bound-off edge.

Technique Requirements: knit/purl, cast on/bind off, increase/decrease, working in the round, have knit a whole garment, basic finishing techniques
