Forget that "Darn"ing Needle for Knit Hems with Beth Whiteside
Learn how to hem garments without the fuss of sewing with that "darn" tapestry needle. The knit hem works on either the cast-on or bind-off edge, and Jim will show different ways todo it so you can choose the technique that works best for the garment. Bring double point, straight or circular needles in size US 7, and a ball of classic worsted-weight yarn in a pastel color.
Comfort with knit, purl, yarn over stitches, as well as picking up stitches and a 3-needle bind off required.
