Surprisingly Special Techniques with Anna Zilboorg
Learn techniques that Anna has found more useful than she ever imagined. Most important is the perfect buttonhole—and it IS a perfect buttonhole. It is helpful if students have some experience with kitchener stitching, but even without it, one can make almost perfect buttonholes that never sag and always close. There is also a k1, p1 rib with neat, even stitches; easy wrapping for clusters—once, twice, and thrice; knitting backwards with 2 colors (never purl Fair Isle again); plus other hints which are more or less arcane but no less useful.
