Totally Tubular with Lorilee Beltman
For crisp, professional edges to your knitted ribbing, tubular is the way to go. Students will learn and practice a tubular cast-on for both k1, p1 and k2, p2 ribbing. We will learn the method that requires no waste yarn nor crochet hook, which means no picking out waste yarn. On our swatches, we then learn and practice the tubular bind-off for each, so that our sweater beginnings and endings can look fabulous and match exactly.
The teacher's goal is to have the student understand and practice to the point of no longer needing to look up instructions. Skills learned in class: Judy's Magic Cast-on, Tubular Cast-on, Tubular Bind-off, Kitchener Stitch graft.
