Devilish Designer Details with Christine Bylsma
Details can often make or break a garment. Fingercord (not finger knitting) is one of those elements that can add just the perfect touch and is so versatile—but so unknown—that requires only your fingers, yarn, and a will to play! Learn how to create ties, drawstrings, frogs, loop closures, swirled buttons and more. Then master the secrets of a designer swirl, a lettuce edge, and a faux fringed pocket to add full designer impact to your creations.
