What It's All About

Before you begin knitting, you should really consider your finishing techniques. Holli will show you tips and tricks that will make your finishing easier and more polished, rivalling commercially made garments. In this skill-building workshop we’ll work on your cast on, selvedges, fully fashioned increases and decreases, tension and neckline shaping. River City Yarns will provide the yarn required for this class, so you only need to bring your tools! For the full finishing experience, we recommend that you also sign up for Finishing Techniques II.
