Eeeek Steeks!!!!

Please join me October 6th from 4-7 PM at Flock, Nantucket for a Steeking Class.

Eeeek, STEEKS!!!!

By Heidi Todd Kozar

Isla Cardi

Steeks are the secret ingredient of the glorious Fair Isle and Stranded Colorwork garments everyone loves. Steeks are the bridge of stitches that are reinforced and then CUT open. Steeks will free you if you hate to purl, even if you never plan to knit a stranded color work garment. In this class we will look at various methods of steeking, how to reinforce our steeks, the frightening cutting and the beautiful finishing of our steeks. Steeks can be used in stranded color work or just to facilitate knitting in the round. We will discuss the placement of steeks within a garment. At the end of this class you will be cutting your knitting with abandon.

 

Class limited to 15.

 

Supplies Needed: Two light colored, worsted weight WOOL yarns and appropriately sized circular or double pointed needles. Sewing scissors, a crochet hook to correspond to the weight of the yarn and a tapestry needle.

 

Homework: Knit a 6” x 6” swatch in worsted weight WOOL. MUST BE WOOL!!!

 

Knitting Level: Intermediate. Should be comfortable knitting in the round. Color work knowledge is not necessary.

 

Price: $40.00 per student
