First launched just over a month ago, we're happy to be back sharing even more fabulous content with you over at the Fundamentals to Finishing Knits course, taught by Holli Yeoh @holliyeoh!⁠

In this comprehensive knitting course, we began with covering the fundamentals – cast ons, tension, gauge and more, and in the newly released Module 2, Holli teaches us all about shaping in our knitting! Including increases, decreases, and short rows for shoulder shaping, Holli also talks about fully fashioned shaping, which is about making clean lines in your knit projects – providing a more polished look for your knitting, making it look more professional. ⁠

Find the newly added module over at the SOS course page – link in bio »⁠
And be sure to share your own course progress with us over in the SOS community forums or here on Instagram with #sosknitting and #schoolofsweetgeorgia!
