Knitting expert Ann Budd guides you through an assortment of easy knitting cast-on and bind-off methods and on to more advanced and intricate techniques in her new Interweave Knits workshop video.
No matter what your knitting project, Ann shows you the perfect way to start and finish it. This two-part video workshop is packed with knitting resources you’ll turn to again and again. Over 45 cast-on and bind-off methods are presented geared to knitters of all levels. Clear instructions and demonstrations will help you make the best choices.
Part One: Cast-ons Learn standard cast-ons such as the backward-loop, chained-edge, knitted and cabled cast-ons, long-tail method, and the Old Norwegian twisted cast-on. Then take your knitting one step further with more advanced cast-ons such as ribbed cast-ons, decorative picot, fringe, braid and provisional cast-ons, three different circular cast-on methods, and much more.
Part Two: Bind-offs Learn standard bind-offs, such as the suspended or crocheted technique, as well as extra-flexible, extra-tight, and ribbed bind-offs. Finishing techniques can make or break your final piece, and in this portion of the workshop you will also learn how to join your knitting using the Kitchener stitch, 3-needle bind-off, and more. Decorative picot and I-cord finishings give your knitwear an added flair.
