Is steeking on your "learn to do wish list" but feeling a little daunted by this technique, you are not alone! Taking a pair of scissors to your knitting can feel scary, especially if it is on a whole sweater!
Fear not, over the two sessions you will be guided through two handed Fair Isle, how to catch your weaves confidently and not tangle your yarn! In the second session you will cover picking up stitches, button bands and STEEK!
Skills Required: Knit, purl, cast on and bind off.
