Class Details:

Tackle the scary steek and open a whole new world of possibilities with your knitting! Together we will explore two different styles of steek edges, from the fun of a knotted fringe steek, great for a shawl, and the all-round-great reinforcement method with crochet. We will finish off with the perfect and super neat steek sandwich band that makes a great finishing touch, hiding your steek on a cardigan.
