Many knitters avoid a lot of garment patterns because of the finishing work required, and even the most experienced knitters often have holes in their finishing knowledge – or simply lack confidence about them. The reason is simple: information in books and patterns is often very weak in this area, leaving knitters to try to figure it out themselves. This workshop demonstrates some practical, useful and sensible finishing skills. Our objective is to dispel a lot of common myths, break down some common sources of confusion, and take the fear out of it. We’ll cover the three key seaming methods – reviewing how to do them and where to use them, including how to set in a sleeve, and we’ll talk about picking up stitches, blocking, and weaving in ends.

optional homework – won’t be used in class, but will be for suggested practice: Using 4-5mm/US #6-8 needles and medium-weight yarn in a light color, make the following squares: two 4 x 4 in squares in stocking stitch, one 4 x 4 in square in garter stitch, one 4 x 4 in square (k1, p1) ribbing; 2 15-stitch swatches of stockinette stitch – work 4 rows and leave the stitches on holders.
