Speed steeking

– without a sewing machine in sight

Class level: intermediate
Duration: 2 hours

The rumors are true – Icelanders knit everything in the round and they fearlessly steek their cardigans but cringe at the mere thought of knitting a whole garment back and forth. This class is all about the increasingly popular crochet method. We’ll work two steeks on a little sample piece – one planned and one afterthought. Examples and tips on finishing are included.

Techniques covered: German twisted cast on, the benefits of using crochet steeks, crochet steek, afterthought steeks, finishing techniques.

Supplies list: 20 yards of Lopi light in a light color, US5 32” circular needles or straight, a piece of scrap yarn, darning needle, crochet hook size C or D
