Class Details:

Struggling with too-tight edges? Can't get your mittens on? Garment necklines too tight? This session will show you key techniques for ensuring stretchy edges: a variety of flexible cast-ons, some very helpful bind-offs, and tips for making them easier and better. (You’ll never run out of tail on your long-tail cast-on again!) We’ll also talk about how to make the side edges of your pieces better, whether for one-piece items like scarves or for pieces that are to be sewn up.

Homework:

None

Scrap light-colored medium-weight yarn and 4-5mm/US #6-8 needles, a couple of stitch markers
