This class addresses all those many seams in a garment and explains methods for creating well-finished edges. Easing sleeves, sewing shoulders, attaching button bands, and attaching stitches to rows (horizontal to vertical edges) are covered in this class. Different methods of sewing stitches are needed here, and largely this class covers how to create seaming ratios between the different directions of knitting to ensure a smooth and even fit. There are methods covered in this class that will enable the knitter to have excellent results regardless of the pattern.
