FULL – An Introduction to Steeking
Tuesday 16th April 7pm – 9pm £20
Sometimes when knitting in the round your work needs a hole in it – a space for the handle of your favourite mug cosy, the handle and spout of a tea cosy, armholes in a Fair Isle sweater. Steeking is a technique where you plan the holes, create a space for them, keep knitting in the round and when you finish… Cut your knitting open with scissors! Don’t worry; we reinforce the edges beforehand so all your hard work doesn’t fall apart J
You will learn how to plan and prepare to steek, add a crocheted reinforcement and cut the steek open to create a simple mug cosy.
Skills needed: Knitting in the round, basic crochet skills (slip stitch only required).
