Steeking - Saturday 1st February 2020 2pm - 5pm.
We are thrilled that Karie Westermann is coming to teach a number of classes here at Northern Yarn in 2020!
Karie Westermann is a knitwear designer and tutor working across the UK and Europe. Her client list includes Rowan Yarns, Edinburgh Yarn Festival, Oslo Strikkefestival, Malabrigo, Blacker Yarns and Eden Cottage Yarns. Karie also regularly appears in knitting magazines and podcasts. She is an experienced and sought-after tutor with more than 15 years' experience teaching at all levels.
Learn how to safely cut into your knitted fabric with this hands-on workshop. Karie Westermann will teach you how to use waste stitches to set up a steek, how to secure your steek stitches, how to finish a steeked opening neatly, and (of course) how to cut your fabric. The technique is particularly useful for large colourwork projects, but can be applied to any knitted fabric.
Intermediate - you need to be comfortable knitting in the round.
The class comes with a small amount of homework as you will need to bring knitted samples to the class. This will be sent by email in advance of the workshop.
