Holli Yeoh: Fine Finishing Techniques 2


All the pieces are done! Now it's time to put it all together and that's where you begin to lose it. Picking up stitches, grafting, buttonholes, blocking and all those ends! Holli will show you how it's done (it's worth the effort!)

What It's All About

Uplift your knits from “home made” to “hand knit” by learning fine finishing techniques that will add a touch of sophistication and polish to your projects, making them look better. After all the pieces of your project are completed, you'll want to prepare them for assembly and wearing. This is where we’ll cover bind offs, blocking, ends, applied edgings and if time permits, buttonholes. You’ll have a chance to try your hand at seaming both stockinette stitch and garter stitch as well as false grafting. We’ll discuss the merits of seams vs seamless construction. For the full finishing experience, we recommend that you also sign up for Finishing Techniques I.
