Snip and Zip: Steeks and Zippers with Franklin Habit
This empowering class is designed to guide timid and/or inexperienced knitters through two operations: the cutting of steeks (slashed openings in knit fabric) and the installation of zippers. These techniques are famous for causing anxiety in the uninitiated.
Note: Fluency in the basics of knitting, including knitting-in-the-round and stranded 2-color work (Fair Isle Knitting) is a pre-requisite.
