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)

  • small sharp scissors
