Simple Seaming

3 class swatches and their seams.

1-2 class hours.

Seaming is one of those basic skills, just beyond the knitting fundamentals of cast-on, knit, purl, and bind-off. We’ll make small swatches in class and practice the basic techniques of seaming rows-to-rows and stitches-to-stitches. And we’ll talk about how these techniques are used to put garments and other knit pieces together. Learn to seam, and a whole new world of knitting will open for you!
