Seaming and Finishing for Knitting and Crochet with Kira Dulaney


Workshop Description: Neat seaming and finishing make such a difference in a handmade project, but so many knitters and crocheters don’t feel confident in their finishing skills. This class will be useful for anyone who knits or crochets garments or accessories and is recommended for anyone wanting to enter the Skeins and Textiles competition at future Lambtown Festivals. Techniques will include planning ahead for finishing ease and success, weaving in yarn ends on knit and crocheted fabric, seaming knitting using mattress stitch aka invisible stitch, seaming crochet with mattress stitch or slip stitch, grafting, picking up stitches for knit edging, single crochet edging, buttonholes multiple ways, and sewing buttons securely.


Experience Level: Beginner to Advanced


Students Should Have: A few swatches, some yarn, and needles/hooks to practice with, darning needle, scissors.
