Sheepy Steeky Coasters

Michele Lee Bernstein

Friday AM

Is steeking on your knitting bucket list? Why would you knit something in the round to knit a flat object? How can you keep your cut knitting from falling apart? So many questions, and we have the answers! This coaster class is a gentle introduction to crocheted steek reinforcement. You’ll knit the homework, and then we’ll reinforce, cut, and finish in class. Previous crochet experience not required.

Skill level:
knit/purl; cast on/bind off; 2 color stranded colorwork in the round

Material Fee:
$4 for Sheepy Steeky Coasters pattern; I'll send you a link for the pattern before class
