Professional Finishing Techniques - The Wool Merchant, Dartington, Devon
After spending hours, weeks or even 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.
Please bring some smooth DK or Aran weight yarns and suitable needles, a blunt sewing needle and two 20x20 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. Bring some spare yarn in a contrasting colour.
All other materials supplied.
Suitable for all knitters.
