Cutting and Securing Steeks with Ann Budd VIA ZOOM!



Learn how a steek can be added to a simple stranded two-color pattern that’s knitted in the round. Ann will show you how to stabilize the stitches with slipstitch crochet (no sewing machine!), cut open the tube, and secure the cut edges so that button bands (or a zipper) can be added.

An illustrated handout will be provided.

If you’d like to practice the techniques demonstrated, you’ll need two contrasting colors of worsted-weight yarn, size U.S. 7 (4.5 mm) double-pointed knitting needles, 2 stitch markers, size G/6 (4.25 mm) crochet hook, tapestry needle, sharp scissors, and homework swatch (instructions will be sent prior to class).

Your Zoom Login will be sent the day before class.  

This is a Live, One Time Zoom Event at 6 eastern, 5 Central, 4 Mountain, 3 Pacific  

The below  "homework" is optional but can be done before the event and you can knit along with Ann.
