Steeking with Ethan
Sunday 23 Feb, 2-5pm
Any sweater can become a cardigan with the magic of steeking. Many of the greatest classic colourwork designs are meant to be steeked but cutting into one’s knitting can be intimidating. Come and practice the art of steeking with friends in a low stakes environment so you are ready to face the steeks to unleash your knitting potential and get many more cardigans into your wardrobe. In this three hour class we will cover the hand sewn steek and the crochet steek method and some pickup and finishing methods.
Materials needed: 2 balls of non-superwash DK weight yarn, any Bandit or Outlaw Yarn will be acceptable, and 4mm needle with a 60cm cable for making the homework swatch, for class a small tapestry needle, contrasting thread, a 3.25-4mm crochet hook, non-superwash DK weight yarn in a contrasting colour, and scissors.
