It can be the details that allow our knitted garments to have a pleasing, professional “handmade” finish – but instructions for achieving such finishes aren’t always included in the pattern.
In this class, we will learn how to work symmetrical increases and decrease and discuss placement of shaping within the row. We will practise amending the shoulder-shaping instructions in patterns to avoid stepped, holey edges and instead use short-row shaping for a smoother, neater finish. We will then learn how to graft together both sides of the shoulder.
Level: Confident beginners and intermediate knitters.
Skills needed: Knit, purl, simple decreasing and increasing.
Materials to bring: 3.75mm needles (straight or circular, whichever you prefer for working back and forth)
4mm straight needles
Knitting bag with your usual accessories
Notepad and pen / pencil.
Any "homework"?: Yes: Knitting a small swatch in advance of the class.
Class size: 9
