Tips & Techniques
Class Details:
Learn two expert knitting techniques in one class. For crisp, professional edges to your knitted ribbing, tubular is the way to go. Students will learn and practice a tubular cast-on for both k1 x p1 and k2 x p2 ribbing. We will learn the method that requires no waste yarn nor crochet hook, which means no picking out waste yarn. On our swatches, we then learn and practice the tubular bind-off, so that our sweater beginnings and endings can look fabulous and match exactly. Skills learned in class: Judy’s Magic Cast-On, tubular cast-on, tubular Bind-off, Kitchener stitch graft. Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; basic finishing techniques
