Donna Smith - Making the Cut

  • The Risk Factory 20 New Mart Rd Edinburgh EH14 1RL (map)

Take the fear out of knitting steeks and cutting your knitting! During the class Donna will discuss various ways of knitting steeks and finishing work once it has been cut. You will knit a small piece of Fair Isle with a steek and then will cut it at the end. You will also pick up stitches at the edge of the steek. There will be some examples of finished garments knitted using steeks on display.
