If you are ready to take the next step in finessing your finishing techniques, then forge on to pockets, zippers, steeks, facings and edging options! We’ll experiment with these techniques using two sampler pillows and small steps towards design choices will be offered. Be prepared for homework between classes - your hard work will be rewarded when you apply these techniques to your future knitted garments for a professional-looking finish!
