Fear finishing no more! This class will take your knitting to the next level and give you the skills you need to finish your projects beautifully and easily. Beginning with an investigation into the anatomy of a stitch and the interconnectedness of stitches in knitted fabric, learn to use that knowledge to finish your knits skillfully. In this class you, will learn to master mattress stitch, invisibly weave in your ends, perfectly pick up stitches, and effortlessly block your work. Once you gain confidence in these skills, you will agree that finishing can be fun.
This class is open to everyone age 15+ from beginners to those familiar with the process. Knitters should know how to knit, purl, and read basic knitting instructions. Knitters should be able to complete homework swatches independently.
