Technique Toolbox: a skill-building workshop
Does disaster strike when you drop a stitch? Do “paired increases” sound like a dating website to you? Do you panic when picking up stitches? Are you perpetually knitting in the round to avoid sewing a seam? If you’ve answered “yes”, then it’s time to fill your technique toolbox in this full-day skill building workshop.
In this workshop you’ll learn how to…
· Un-do common knitting mistakes without “tinking”
· Work paired increases and decreases to enhance the finished look of a garment
· Pick-up stitches along straight and curved edges
· Sew “seamless-looking” side and shoulder seams
· Weave in ends so they stay put
