(includes tea/coffee and day entry to the unravel festival)
with Anniken Allis
After spending hours, weeks or months knitting a beautiful garment poor finishing can ruin all your hard work. Learn how to sew up garments using mattress stitch, shaping to make sewing up easier, picking up stitches for neck bands and button bands, short row shaping and three needle cast off for shoulders.
Suitable for all knitters.
Please bring some smooth dk or aran weight yarns and suitable needles, a blunt sewing needle and two 20×20 cm stocking stitch swatches in a smooth yarn. Do not cast off your swatches but leave them on a piece of waste yarn. Bring a third swatch in stocking stitch (approx 10cm wide x 20cm tall) – this swatch can be cast off.
