Cocoknits European Finishing Class - October 29th
Instructor: Julie Weisenberger of Cocoknits
Take your home-made project to a hand-made project in this comprehensive finishing class.
Julie learned to knit in Europe and owned a ready-to-wear sweater company in the 80’s. In this class, she will share tips and techniques that she picked up along the way. Come prepared to learn!
Class covers basics like selvedge stitches, increases, decreases and also special techniques like provisional cast-on with a second circular needle, using a yarn over or safety-pin (Japanese method) for short row shaping, binding off neatly in the middle of a row (for a neckline), bias bind off for multiple bind-offs, blocking, seaming and neatly picking up stitches along a button-band or neckline.
After this class, you will be finishing like a pro.
Materials: Bring a couple of working swatches, about 20 stitches wide with couple of inches stockinette st knitted on US 6 or larger needles.
