Decorative Cast-ons and Bind-offs with Patty Lyons
Let the beauty of your project start at your cast-on and end at your bind-off! We will explore some of my favorite decorative cast-ons and bind-offs including Channel Island, picot, I-cord, disappearing loop, and more. We will look at matching cast-on and bind-off edges. Then for a real bang, learn how to work with a second color.
