From Start to Finish

Thanks for joining me in class! I hope you picked up some tips on how you can think ahead to make finishing your handknits easier and more satisfying.

As you can see, in a 3-hour class we can’t begin to cover everything there is to know about finishing. Some of the techniques we may not have been able to cover in depth are:

  • 3-needle bind-off
  • Kitchener stitch (grafting)
  • Provisional cast-ons
  • Short-rowing (esp. for shoulders)

I cover some of these techniques in other classes, and they are certainly described well in various books and videos, and other places on the internet. Below are some resources that you may find helpful:

Blocking mats and wires are a huge timesaver.
