Take the fear out of knitting steeks and cutting your knitting! During the class Donna will discuss various ways of knitting steeks and finishing work once it has been cut. You will knit a small piece of Fair Isle with a steek and then cut it at the end. You will also pick up stitches at the edge of the steek. There will be some examples of finished garments knitted using steeks on display.

Materials: Yarn will be supplied but please bring a set of 3 or more double pointed needles in size 3mm/3.25mm or 3.50mm or circular knitting needles long enough to work magic loop.

Skills required: Participants should be able to knit stocking stitch in the round with two colours at one time.
