Do your knitted sweaters languish in pieces, waiting for the motivation to weave in the ends and put them together? When you bind off the last stitch of a seamless sweater, you skip past the finishing and go straight to wearing your creation. Learn no-sew knitting techniques to create polished, great-looking knitted sweaters in Finish-Free Knitting Techniques with Kristen TenDyke.
Designer Kristen TenDyke, author of Finish-Free Knits, shares her expert advice on this Interweave Knits Workshop. She demonstrates how you can make sophisticated garments with set-in sleeves, pockets, and other fine details without sewing a single seam. Learn these clever knitting techniques to create shapely, stable sweaters:
- How to pick up stitches along any edge for an elegant look
- Where to add short-rows for better-fitting necks and sleeves
- When to use provisional, cable, knitted, and even backward-loop cast-ons
- How to create edgings, casings, and even pockets seamlessly
- Why even finish-free knitting requires a tapestry needle, and how to use it (rarely!)
With instructions for casting on, shaping, embellishing, and binding off your no-sew garments, this video workshop will have you wearing your new favorite knits in no time.
Plus, practice your finish-free knitting skills with the bonus FREE Blooming Forest Pullover pattern by Kristen TenDyke!
