With Beth Brown-Reinsel
April 11, 1-3pm CDT
Make the edges of your knitting pretty, strong, and elastic with these two-color cast-ons from the Baltic region of the world.
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 7 days following the event.
Learn to enhance your knitted items with the Herringbone Cast-on, the Kihnu Troi Cast-on, and two variations of the Twisted Loop Cast-on.
These cast-ons have roots in the Baltic and are excellent choices for socks and mittens, producing durable yet elastic edges. We will work the cast-ons on three different samples, and knit beyond to observe how the fabric responds to each edge.
Special skills or knowledge needed to take this class:
Know how to work the Long Tail Cast-on.
