Beginning Finishing


Class Description

This is a VERY basic finishing class, designed to make you more comfortable with the most basic finishing techniques necessary in order to make your knitted pieces come together into a beautiful finished product, from cast-on to weaving in the last tail. More than one student has said after taking this class that they wanted to take apart everything they had ever knit and put it back together using the techniques they learned! Geared toward the beginner, although intermediate and experienced knitters can benefit from this class if they’re still unsure about their finishing techniques. In this class, you will knit a baby’s dropped-shoulder cardigan.
