Kitchener like a Pro! with Anne Kuo Lukito
Great finishing techniques can really make your knitting look professional. The Kitchener stitch is great for grafting seamlessly in stockinette stitch, but what about other pattern stitches like seed or rib? We will learn how to work Kitchener in pattern so that you can have invisible joins, whether in cables, seed stitch, rib or other textured stitches — just like a pro!
