You'll conquer steps for garter-stitch, ribbed band and reverse rolled edgings. Plus, you'll discover best practices for weaving in your ends, washing, blocking and storing your projects safely.
Designer Chris Bylsma loves teaching students to make knitted projects shine! Start by learning what finishing really means and see Chris' easy and effective steps to plan ahead for sleeker results. Plus, you'll get tips on preventing common problems.
Horizontal, or stitch-to-stitch seams, are considered the basic seams that provide stability and strength to your project. Chris shares not only how to work this seam on practice swatches, but also the incredibly easy secrets to correct mistakes such as jumped stitches in the seam.
Move on to vertical, or row-to-row seams. You'll get detailed instructions on how to compensate while seaming pieces that might not be the same size. Chris will even help troubleshoot situations such as seaming garter and textured knitting.
