Class Details:

What? Cut my knitting!? Oh yes. And we will have fun while dong it! Don’t worry, your stitches WILL NOT unravel. Steeking requires securing your stitches, and you will learn how to do just that! Once you learn how, you will be able to speed up your knitting and steek your pieces open for sleeves, necklines and fronts. After this class, not only will you be a fearless knitter, but you will also be able to upcycle old sweaters turning pullovers into cardigans. Lastly, cutting your knitting is oddly satisfying, and Keith loves watching you do it with confidence!

Technique Requiremnts: must be comfortable with Fair Isle knitting
