Elevate your knits from “homemade” to “hand knit” by learning fine finishing techniques that add a touch of sophistication and polish to your knitting projects, making them look better. In the Fundamentals to Finishing Knits skill-building course you’ll discover Holli Yeoh’s favourite cast on, fully-fashioned increases and decreases, short row shoulder shaping, seams, weaving in ends, successful pick up and knit tips, buttonholes and more. Download your workbook and come join us!
In this course you will learn:
Module 1: Fundamentals
- Cast ons
- Joining yarn
- Selvedge stitches
Module 2: Shaping
- Fully fashioned shaping
- Short rows for shoulder shaping
Module 3: Finishing
- Bias bind off
- Bind offs
- Picking up stitches
- Weaving in ends
Knitting and finishing use two separate skill sets and not all knitters may be naturally good at finishing. Luckily, fine finishing techniques are something that can be learned, and Holli loves sharing what she knows about finishing to set you up with the skills you need! She’ll demystify the process of picking up and knitting, share the perfect seaming techniques (and when to use them – even for a set-in sleeve), and she’ll wax poetic about the whys and wherefores for the techniques that are presented, which makes it easier to remember and understand which technique to choose in a given situation.
Join in the workshop today and start learning – share your creative journey with us in the SOS Fundamentals to Finishing Knits community forums or on Instagram using #sosknitting and #schoolofsweetgeorgia!
Paired along with this course, read Greta Cornejo’s story of Swatching for the Little Basic Cardi & Greta’s Little Basic Cardi Update – Holli’s knitting pattern included with this course, available for knitting in three different yarn weights: fingering, DK and worsted!
