Learn how to get a professionally finished look on your knits during this workshop. We will cover the three different types of seams you’ll encounter when you put together your pieces, plus you’ll get tons of extra tips like how to weave in tails so they don’t come loose or peek through the front of your work.

The Zoom link and class handout will be emailed to you 24 hours prior to the class. Please read homework and materials list below.

Homework: US 8 (5mm) knitting needle, worsted weight yarn.

Swatches 1 and 2: Cast on 28 stitches

Row 1 (RS): knit 28

Row 2 (WS): purl 14, knit 14.

Repeat these last 2 rows for 6” and bind off.

If you have time and would like to save examples of the seams you’ve worked rather than pulling them out to practice other seams, make an additional 2 swatches in this same way.

Swatch 3: Cast on 28 stitches.

Row 1 (RS): knit

Row 2 (WS): purl

Row 3: bind off 3 stitches, knit to the end of the row.

Row 4: purl.

Repeat rows 3 and 4 until 4 sts remain, bind off.
