Fair Isle and Steeking

Is steeking on your "learn to do wish list" but you're feeling a little daunted by this technique, you are not alone.

Taking a pair of scissors to your knitting can feel scary, especially if it is on a whole sweater! Fear not, over the two sessions you will be guided through two handed Fair Isle and how to catch your weaves confidently and not tangle your yarn! 

In the second session we will STEEK! and not only that, we'll also cover best practices for picking up stitches and button bands.

This is a 2 part class next available in June:

Sunday June 19th & 26h from 10.30-12.30pm PDT via Zoom.
