Professional Finishing Workshop with tutor, Carol Meldrum
Thursday 16th March 2023 | 10am - 4pm
Often with hand knitted garments it can be the finishing off that can let you down. On this workshop we will show you how to get that professional look to your knitted garments. On the day we will work through the various mattress stitch methods and where and when to use them to get the best results. We will also look the do's and don'ts of blocking and pressing, picking up stitches and creating button holes and button bands.
A little homework is required in preparation for the workshop. Please bring 4 x 12 cm square swatches knitted in stocking stitch using a DK natural fibre or at least one with very low acrylic content. That will will be able to withstand an iron for the pressing method. You will also need to bring 3.25mm and 4mm knitting needles, glass headed pins (so that the pinned knitting can be ironed, plastic might melt) and a sewing up yarn needle. Yarn will be given out to use in the class.
