Introduction to Finishing and Seaming Techniques
March 23, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$20.00
You will learn the necessary skills to seam your sweaters beautifully: blocking, mattress stitch, and working in ends. You will also learn tips to use in knitting your sweaters that will make finishing easier. As time permits, we will discuss setting in sleeves and picking up and knitting button bands and collars. Bring three approximately 4 x 4” worsted weight swatches knit in plain stockinette (knit one row, purl one row) and two knit in garter stitch (knit every row) to practice techniques on. If you have a sweater that needs finishing, bring that too. In addition to the swatches and extra yarn, bring a yarn needle and something to hold your pieces together: safety pins, plastic yarn pins, locking stitch markers, or small hair clips.
