Enviable Invisible Seams with Ann McCauley
Learn seaming details that make the difference in having a professional-looking finished garment and learn which seaming techniques are appropriate for different areas in a garment. We will cover how to begin seaming, invisible horizontal, invisible vertical, and invisible vertical to horizontal seaming methods, as well as the whipstitch for use with hems and facings.
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
Knit 4 swatches (4" X 4"). Each swatch should include a K1 selvage stitch at each edge. Knit a couple of swatches in stockinette, and a couple in a textured stitch with cables or twist to further refine seaming skills.
