Finishing Techniques — Picking Up Stitches

March 15, 2016 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Join Mary Beth on Tuesday, March 15th from 2-4pm. $45 plus materials. There is prep work required for this class. Ask for details at time of registration.

You’ve asked and we’ve answered! If you’ve been stuck making scarves and hats, hesitant to step outside your comfort zone, now is the time to conquer your fear. You know how to cast on, bind off, increase, and decrease–but what about those edges? To add a decorative border to a baby blanket, or make button bands on cardigans, you’ll need to start by picking up stitches. This class will take you through the process, picking up on straight edges and diagonals, stockinette and garter.


Advance preparation may be required depending on the class topic. Details will be provided one week in advance or upon sign-up. Each weekly class session includes two hours of hands-on instruction, and extra help outside of class if needed and our time allows (it almost always does!). Yarn for classes must come from Compatto Yarn Salon, and we are always happy to help you choose the best yarn for your class or project. If you have questions about this or any other class, please give us a call at 310-453-2130.
