We love online learning. Especially when we're able to bring great instructors like Kate Atherley right to you. Using Zoom as our online videoconferencing platform, you can take this class from anywhere. 

Knitting on the Edge!

Struggling with too-tight edges? Can't get your sock or mittens on? Garment necklines too tight? This session will show you key techniques for ensuring stretchy edges: a variety of flexible cast ons, some very helpful bind offs, and tips for making them easier and better. (You'll never run out of tail on your long tail cast on again!) We'll also talk about how to make the side edges of your pieces better, whether for one-piece items like scarves, or for pieces that are to be sewn up.

Skill level: advanced beginner/intermediate; knitters should be confident with knit, purl, cast on and bind off

Please bring: 4-5mm/US #6-8 needles and scrap yarn in a light color.

Have you got any specific questions about edges that you'd like Kate to address in class? Please send an email to cynthia@rivercityyarns.com and she'll send them in advance. Time will be given for asking questions during the workshop as well.
