Knitting in the round is a very efficient way to create knitted items, especially those with stranded patterns. However, the idea of cutting your knitting to create openings—whether for armholes, necklines, or cardigans—can provoke extreme anxiety! The internet offers many different methods—which one is best? In this class we will explore three ways to knit and cut steeks (extra stitches that form a facing when cut open): the traditional “just cut” method; securing with crochet; and needle felted. I’ll also demonstrate how to add bands or sleeves securely without unsightly gaps or awkward math.
