Finishing Techniques for Knitters with Handmade Workshops
Time & Location
About The Event
This workshop by Handmade Creative Workshops will teach you a range of invaluable techniques, from mattress stitch seaming, picking up & knitting stitches, to creating button holes and learning how to block your work.
Please prepare and bring with you 5 x 10cm square swatches using a smooth DK yarn – 3 in stocking stitch (RS row all knit stitches, WS row all purl stitches), and 2 in garter stitch (all rows in knit stitch). Please also bring a ball of DK smooth yarn and a pair of 4mm needles (straight or circular), a tapestry/sewing up needle, knitter’s pins and a stitch holder.
Suitable for anyone with a basic level of knitting ability.
We’ll provide lots of tea and coffee to help your concentration!
The workshop will be led by expert knitter, designer and yarn consultant, Suzanne Strachan.
