Knitted Steeks Class
Saturdays, October 23, 30, November 6, 2021,10-12:30
A steek is a column of extra stitches used to bridge two edges of knitting allowing to knit a project completely in the round. Steeks can be worked between the right and left fronts of a cardigan, the front and back edges of an armhole, and/or the sides of a neckline. After knitting the steeks or column of stitches are reinforced, then cut along the centre of the stitches creating an opening where sleeves, neckbands or button bands are picked up along the cut edges and knit. Steeks are traditionally used in color patterns, however if you prefer knitting in the round to working flat, you can use them in solid-color sweaters as well.
In this class students will knit a small button front vest and learn how to knit, reinforce, cut and finish steeks, then how to pick up and knit bands around the armholes, neckbands, and button bands.
