Steeking November 27th 11-1
Steeking is a technique whereby you cut your knitted fabric after the knitting is done. It is most commonly used to enable a colorwork cardigan to be knit in the round and then cut open. It is also often used for armhole and pocket openings in colorwork knits.
Preparation: Using a non-superwash worsted weight wool yarn in a light color and size 8 16" circular needles, cast on 100 stitches and knit for 4". Bind off.
Materials: In addition to the prep, you will need:
a fingering weight non-superwash yarn in a contrasting color
a crochet hook of a size suitable for your contrasting yarn (You do not need to know how to crochet. We will learn the single crochet stitch.)
darning needle (blunt and sharp)
