It may well be the scariest thing you can do with your knitting... taking a pair of scissors to it! Steeking – cutting a piece of knitting – is on many knitters’ “bucket lists”, and this class is any easy way to learn about it, and to take the fear out of it.

We’ll talk about the hows and whys of steeking, discussing different methods of reinforcement, edging and finishing. Whether you’re a keen colourwork knitter looking to take your skills to the next level, or just curious what the fuss is about, this class will explain it all!
