Description: In this workshop you use swatches to learn, and practice, different types of seams, bind-offs, and edge finishes and which are best suited for different types of knit projects. Button Bands, buttonholes, picking up stitches, I-cord bind-off, 3-needle bind off, and crocheted seams and edges will all be covered.
Experience: All skill levels, basic knitting skills required.
HOMEWORK: Students should bring 6 swatches to class. Do not bind off your swatches, but place them on stitch holders or spare needles. We will use them to learn bind-off, seaming, and edging techniques. They should be knit from a worsted weight yarn and should measure at least 4" inches X 4" inches. You will need two swatches each knit in Garter Stitch, Stockinette Stitch, and Seed Stitch.
Materials: 1 pair of single-pointed knitting needles in the size you used for your
swatches, 1 set of double-pointed knitting needles in the size you used for your
swatches, contrasting worsted weight yarn, crochet hook in the same size you used for your swatches (or close), yarn or tapestry needles large enough to accommodate your yarn, plastic seaming pins, basic knitting toolkit
