  • Taking care of your knits to prevent problems

Homework:

Make and bring 3 swatches in stockinette (at least 5” x 5”, but larger is easier to practice with) that will be cut into or sewn into. If you have knitting with rips, tears, holes or worn out places, bring it in, and we will use the last part of class to brainstorm solutions.
