PROFESSIONAL FINISHING TECNIQUES
After all those hours of knitting the individual pieces of our garment, the sewing-up and finishing can be daunting, and fear of ruining our work can lead to stalling. It’s often the details that allow our knitted garments to have a pleasing, professional “handmade” finish – but instructions for achieving such finishes aren’t always included in the pattern.
In this workshop, we will discuss the different stages of the process of making a professionally finished garment to allow us to better manage our time and expectations. We’ll learn some of the techniques needed to create that professional finish including amending the instructions for shoulder-shaping to avoid stepped, holey edges, grafting by knitting to bring together each side and how to pick up stitches.
