Mini-Class: Stretchy Bind-offs
When you're making toe-up socks, it's important to have a couple of stretchy bind-off methods in your toolbox for the cuff.
In this mini-class, you'll learn and practice two stretchy bind-off methods that will serve you well for sock cuffs, sleeve cuffs, and anything that just needs a little extra elasticity at the end: the lace bind-off and the sewn bind-off.
- Class date/time: Sunday, November 22, 7 - 8 PM PST
- Prerequisite skills: casting on, knit stitch, purl stitch
- Materials recommended: US7 needles in your favorite configuration (we won't be joining in the round for this class) and a worsted-weight yarn in a light color
- HOMEWORK: Please cast on 20 stitches with your preferred method and knit 2 unconnected pieces of 5-6 rows of 2x2 ribbing, leaving a tail of yarn attached to each that will suffice to complete a bind-off row. (Good rule of thumb: leave 3-4 times the width of the piece as a tail.). It does not need to be done in the round.
- Class fee: $10
