This workshop explores the best techniques for these finishings that make such a difference in our knitted garments. It covers basic maneuvers, four or more basic edging stitch patterns, and the very best buttonholes. Participants will never again struggle with instructions to “pick up and knit 137 sts along right front” nor with the question of how to make virtually invisible buttonholes.
