Beautiful finishing can make or break the final look of a garment. In this two-hour session, learn pro tips on how to darn in yarn tails, sew a perfectly-invisible seam, and pick up stitches for a polished neckband.
Have you always wanted to design your own special sweater? Join expert author/designer Melissa Leapman as she walks you through the entire design process from beginning to end. Bring all your gnawing questions--even the hard ones!
Spend a couple of hours with author/designer Melissa Leapman and explore how contemporary designers use fully-fashioned increases and decreases to create architecturally-interesting knitted fabrics. Learn how to diagonally bisect a sweater with a traveling cable (a reliable figure-flatterer!) while knitting a seamless patchwork of different textures.
Explore the possibilities of this simple designer's building block. Learn several versions using color, texture, and more! Best of all, since each successive square is built directly onto a previous one, no sewing is required. (Read that: You might actually finish a blanket rather than store individual blocks in a drawer for eternity.) Bonus: Mitered squares are ideal for stashbusting!
Do you have mitered motif mania? Take the next step and add openwork squares to your toolkit! In this hands-on workshop, knit a sample of four different motifs that are built directly onto each other. No sewing is involved!
Prerequisite: My first session about mitered squares called Hip to be Square. It is offered at 12:00 Noon-2:00 PM Eastern on Sunday May 23.
