Ragga Eiríksdóttir: Steeking without Fear
Saturday, 26 July 2014 from 12:00 to 15:00 (CEST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
The rumors are true – Icelanders knit everything in the round and they fearlessly steek their cardigans but cringe at the mere thought of knitting a whole garment back and forth. The class covers the principles behind knitting in the round both using dpn’s and the magic loop method. Two methods of steeking are covered, the conventional one using a sewing machine (sewing machines provided in the class to practice with) and the increasingly popular crochet method. Examples and tips on finishing are included.
