A virtual class with Amy Snell
Sept 11, 10:00am-12:00pm CDT
If you find the Kitchener stitch intimidating or difficult to remember, never fear! There are other ways to close off or graft your knits.
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 4 weeks following the event.
Sock toes have been grafted with many different methods long before Kitchener stitch was around. If you don’t like or can’t remember the how to of Kitchener stitch or want to try something new, spend time with Amy and learn four alternatives.
You’ll learn to work the Zig-Zag Bind-Off, Three-Needle Bind-Off, Fincheley Graft, and Russian Graft.
