Finish What You Start

Description: The details of finishing are what makes a garment fabulous instead of just adequate. However, good finishing does not just happen at the end of the project, it happens the whole way through. Class will cover all aspects of finishing from cast on choices, to decrease decisions clear through to seams, edgings and bands. The pros and cons of each choice we make in the knitting of a garment will be discussed. Next, gain hands on experience developing skills we typically associate with "finishing". Finally, get answers on fixing problems "after it is too late".
Supplies: 2 oz of smooth worsted weight yarn in a light color (used in swatch), needles appropriate to yarn selected.
Homework: CO 29 sts. Work 1" of 1x1 ribbing. Work 2" of stockinette. BO 3 sts at the beginning of the next 2 rows. Dec 1 st each edge every other row 3 times. Work even until piece measures 3" from BO. Leave sts on needle.
Duration: 6 hours per session, 1 session
