Steeks will be covered, both crochet and sewing methods. You will learn different variations of finishing steeks, and how to set up for a steek. Class will cover application of steeks for various parts of the sweater: front, sleeves, neck, and the actual sleeve.

Skills Required:

  • Students should know how to knit, purl, knit in the round, color work preference (Fair Isle, stranded).

Bring to Class:

  • Scissors
  • Small crochet hook
  • Yarn
  • Large eye needle for finishing
  • Appropriately-sized circular needles to create “button bands” after steek is cut

Homework (to be completed prior to class):

Knit a tube of stockinette in worsted or sport weight yarn that measures at least 10 inches around. The length should be at least 4 inches to give enough to work with in finishing a steek. The yarn should be standard wool or Shetland wool ideally, not superwash. Leave the knitting on the needle, don’t bind off the end. Ribbing may be used at the start of the tube like the bottom of a sweater.
