Class Details:

Is steeking on your knitting bucket list? Why would you knit something in the round to knit a flat object? How can you keep your cut knitting from falling apart? So many questions, and we have the answers! This coaster class is gentle introduction to crocheted steek reinforcement. You’ll knit the homework, and we’ll reinforce, cut, and finish in class. Previous crochet experience not required.

Technique Requirements: knit/purl; cast on/bind off; working in the round.


Knit your coasters according to the pattern [Ravelry link], and give them a light steam blocking before class. Use code VKLNYC2023 for 40% off the pattern.

Supplies for Class:

One light-colored and one dark-colored worsted-weight wool yarn, 50 grams/100 yards each, NOT superwash (example: Malabrigo Worsted). You want a nice fuzzy/sticky wool for a good first steek experience. 16”US 7/4.5 mm circular needle, or size to get a fabric you like. Four stitch markers. Contrasting color fingering weight yarn for crocheting steek. Crochet hook, size E. Sharp scissors for cutting!
