FULLY BOOKED - Finishing Techniques with Katharine

  • The Wool Shop 6 High Street Galashiels, TD1 1SD (map)

Finish like a pro!

Would you like to learn how to finish any hand-knitting project with finesse? Book your place to learn the best techniques that will give your knitting a truly professional finish - seaming, sewing in ends, picking up stitches, buttonholes and blocking and pressing. To get the most out of the class, it's a good idea to have some knitting that's ready to be sewn up.

Techniques to be covered:
* Sewing up - experimenting with a variety of seam types
* Sewing in ends
* 3 needle cast off
* Picking up stitches
* Button stands/buttonholes
* Blocking and Pressing

Skills needed: to have knitted a few projects

Materials needed:
* 4mm needles
* Yarn needle
* DK yarn in two colours (small amounts needed so it's a chance to use up any leftovers)
* A few buttons

If you have just completed a garment or accessory please bring it along and we can discuss the best way of finishing it.

£15 per person

Bookings must be paid for in advance at The Wool Shop and are non-refundable
