Eeek! Steeks! with Mary Scott Huff
Read Mary Scott Huff's bio here!
Stranded colorwork knitting is lots of fun: Working in the round, easy shaping, minimal seaming; but how do you get from knitted tubes to people-shaped garments? Easy: Make Steeks!
Steeks are areas of knitting designed to be cut (gasp!) with shears and then finished with knitting. Steeks allow knitters to work in three dimensions, creating garments that fit! Scared to slice into your work? Not after this class with Mary Scott Huff. Students will make a class sample, knitting in the round, and creating a steek. Mary will guide you through three techniques for marking, securing, and cutting open your steek. You will also learn various ways to finish the cut steek edges.
