- Maybe you've played with your ribber, but it is still intimidating
- Have you've only used it for 1x1 ribbing on cuffs? .... OMG! There is sooo much more you can do!
- Let's dust off that machine, give it a little oil (and love) and get knitting!
Knit-along ends Saturday, October 31 2020
Subscribers: Expand your horizons by knitting cuff-to-cuff
Knitting sweaters this way gives us sizing flexibility and a fun way to think about adding color and texture ... sideways!
Cuff to cuff also helps with the needlebed limitations for larger sizes.
Knit a quick baby sweater and explore the options, or jump in and knit an adult size sideways sweater. It's your choice!
- Plan your cuff-to-cuff
- Mix 'n Match stitch patterns
- Yokes/skirts for added length
- Shaping for a "swing" style
Subscribers: Please join us for some sideways knitting. There will be 3 LIVE meetings (via Zoom) and a number of patterns to choose - from babies to adults.

Fearless Cut 'n Sew FinishingCut 'n Sew (Sew 'n Cut) is a great alternative to shaping necklines. It is especially helpful when knitting in pattern... no starting and stopping the pattern to work each side of a neckline.
You don't need a fancy serger to work cut 'n sew. A basic sewing machine will do the trick!
The focus of this Knit-along is finishing. We will explore both single and double bands that will neatly hide the cut edges of your neckline.
Prickly Pear Knit-AlongMaybe you haven't had success knitting sweaters, or maybe your 1st sweater was a bit ambitious for you.

The course includes the Dynamic, Perfect Fit pattern in 4 sizes: kids to adults. The patterns are written in our interactive style. Included are detailed, step-by-step videos to help you knit your one-of-a-kind sweater (and enjoy success!)
