Gear up for winter! Get over your fear of steeking: cutting your knitting! This traditional technique for knitting colorwork is not as scary as it sounds and makes stranded knitting much much easier. These charming colorwork pulse warmers offer so many learning opportunities. You'll learn stranded knitting in the round, carrying yarn, and yarn dominance in the first session. During the second session we'll cut our knitting open (steeking) using 2 different methods. Then we'll pick up stitches to work buttonbands.
Limited to 4 students (16 yrs of age or older); 2 students are required for class to meet. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.
Level: Intermediate. You are confident casting on, knitting and purling, and you think steeking sounds cool.
