237-3 Easy Fabulous Finishing
This hands-on class takes you through the complete process of putting together a sweater. We will talk about weaving techniques as we begin to assemble a sweater or swatches. Once we complete this process, we will discuss neck pick-ups, trims, edges, and collars. We will pick up stitches and talk about curves, proper rib finishes, and buttons and buttonholes. Since we always learn something new when working together, this is a great class for the advanced as well as beginning knitters.
