No Risk, All Reward STEEKS! (NEW!) (Part 2 of 2)
Saturday, January 26, 2019
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Inspiration, Tips & Techniques
Eyeing colorwork cardigan patterns? Tired of working purl rows on Stockinette cardigans? Afraid to cut your knitting? Overcome your fear with NO RISK!
In this workshop, we’ll steek old or thrifted sweaters (bring your own or purchase one from my collection!). You don’t have to knit anything in preparation! You’ll work through all the steps of steeking a sweater, and you’ll be ready—and excited—to steek your own work.
We’ll be doing crocheted and hand-sewn steeks on our sweaters. I’ll demonstrate and provide examples of both methods and discuss the pros and cons of each. You’ll leave the workshop with a booklet of photo tutorials for all the techniques discussed—and a STEEKED SWEATER!
