Class Title: Using Steek Stitches

Teacher Name: Varian Brandon

Class Length: 3 hours

Class Description:

The class is designed for the knitter who is interested in the use of steek stitches.  Maybe you’ve watched all the steeking videos. Maybe you’ve even cut one yourself. But you are still not convinced your stitches are not going to run. Or perhaps that cut steek looks a bit untidy for your heirloom masterpiece.  In this class, we will look at how and why steek stitches are used, a variety of methods to secure those unsightly steek flaps as well as how to pick up stitches along the edge of the steek which will add to the security of the cur openings. All without losing a stitch!
