Class Details:

Learn how to get a professionally finished look on your knits during this workshop. We will cover the three different types of seams you’ll encounter when you put together your pieces, plus you’ll get tons of extra tips like how to weave in tails so they don’t come loose or peek through the front of your work.

Technique Requirements: knit/purl, cast on/bind off

Homework:

US 8 (5mm) knitting needle, worsted weight yarn.

Swatch 1: Cast on 28 stitches
Row 1 (RS): knit 28
Row 2 (WS): purl 14, knit 14.
Repeat these last 2 rows for 6” and bind off.

Swatch 2: Cast on 28 stitches
Row 1 (RS): knit 28
Row 2 (WS): knit 14, purl 14.
Repeat these last 2 rows for 6” and bind off.

If you have time and would like to save examples of the seams you’ve worked (rather than pulling them out to practice other seams), make an additional 2 swatches in this same way.
  
Swatch 3: Cast on 28 stitches.
Row 1 (RS): knit
Row 2 (WS): purl
Row 3: bind off 3 stitches, knit to the end of the row.
Row 4: purl.
Repeat rows 3 and 4 until 4 sts remain, bind off. 
 

Supplies for Class:

Scissors, large-eye bent-tip tapestry needle (such a Chibi by Clover), scrap yarn in worsted weight in a contrasting color. Optional: your are welcome to bring any projects you have that need seaming or finishing and we will work on them at the class.
