KN15 Fantastic Cast-ons and Bind-offs with Patty Lyons
Friday, May 4, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., Shed #2 at Howard County Farm Heritage Museum
How you start and end a project is an important decision. There are so many amazing cast-ons and bind-offs; I’ve gathered some of my favorite and most practical. We will go over great cast-ons and bind-offs for lace, for rib, and more. We will also look at pairing cast-ons and bind-offs that look great together. Let’s start and end with a bang! Proficiency Level: Intermediate. Must know the long tail cast-on (in slingshot position) and how to knit and purl. Bring to Class: Worsted or chunky NON splitty yarn in LIGHT COLOR and a small amount of contrasting color yarn. Needle appropriate for yarn, and one smaller double pointed needle. Crochet hooks in G or H.
Class Fee: $50. Materials Fee: None.
