  • Nancy Hamilton - Technique Tuesday: Steeking

    9:00am-3:00pm Thursday: April 7, 2020

    In knitting, steeking is a shortcut used to knit garments such as sweaters in the round without interruption for openings or sleeves until the end. After completing a tube a straight line is cut along the center of a column of stitches, in order to make room for an opening or place to attach another piece. In this class you will learn how to stabilize your knitting, cut and tack it down as well as different methods to stabilize. Nancy will show you her favorite way.

    Come with a knitted tube 7 inches in diameter and 7 inches in height. Please use DK or worsted weight yarn in a light color.
