      Professional Finishing Techniques with Anniken Allis

      Saturday 15 February - 10.30am to 5pm

      After spending hours, weeks or months knitting a beautiful garment poor finishing can ruin all your hard work.

      Learn how to:

      • Sew in ends neatly,
      • block and press pieces correctly,
      • sew up garments using mattress stitch,
      • shaping to make sewing up easier,
      • picking up stitches for neck bands and button bands,
      • short row shaping and
      • three needle cast off for shoulders.

      Please bring:

      • A blunt sewing needle.
      • Two 15x15 cm stocking stitch swatches in a smooth yarn. Do not cast off your swatches but leave them on a piece of waste yarn.
      • Bring a third swatch in stocking stitch (approx 15x15cm) - this swatch can be cast off.
      • We will provide some smooth DK yarn for use on the day but please bring suitable needles with you.

      Skills needed: Knit, purl, cast on and cast off.

      The cost is £90 per student and includes the yarn for use on the day and light refreshments.
      There will be a 30 minute break for lunch and while there are several eating options in the area you may wish to bring something with you as there isn’t much time.
