Finishing techniques

15 March, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

£35

Don’t let the thought of finishing off, stand between your carefully made pieces of knitted fabric and the hand knitted sweater they are supposed to become.

This class is for knitters who’ve conquered the basics of casting on and off and knitting and purling, but struggle to pull it all together at the very end.

Knitting writer, designer and tutor, Jane Lithgow will teach you how to:

  • graft live stitches together
  • knit a seam using the 3 needle bind-off
  • invisibly sew seams with mattress stitch
  • block your knitting with blocking wires and pins

Please make sure you bring two swatches of stocking stitch knitting with you. Each swatch should be 20 stitches wide and 30 rows long, and should not be cast off –  leave each swatch on a stitch holder or some waste yarn.
