Many of you may know of our experienced Knitting Tutor Bev from her years of work with Rowan at John Lewis in Sheffield.
This course aims to help those knitters who want to give their knitted pieces a professional finish. Techniques covered include tension, using the correct cast-on for the project, shaping techniques, professional buttonholes, picking up stitches, short-row shaping, blocking and pressing and using mattress stitch. Participants are asked to prepare a little homework beforehand by knitting up 2 squares using a DK weight yarn and 4mm needles, casting on 28 sts and working in stocking stitch for 34 rows. Also, please bring along size 4mm knitting needles.
