(505) Classic Hems for Your Machine Knitted Sweater
The classic hems are a great foundation for single bed machine knitting. We’ll begin this class with a discussion of what makes a good hem. Then we’ll immediately jump beyond the plain hem to knit a few of the more complex classics. Strategies for efficient tool use and hem variations will be introduced. Use these hems at the start of a front, back, or sleeve on both full-fashion or cut-and-sew sweater panels.
Any gauge flatbed knitting machine is suitable for these techniques along with the standard machine knitting tools (transfer tools, latch hook, etc.). No ribber is required.
Maximum Class Size:
- Flat bed knitting machine with standard tools
- 1 cone or cake of yarn (about 3 ounces)
- Waste yarn (optional)
