You will learn a variety of techniques for knitting in the round; short row neck shaping, raglan increases, removing sleeves, shaping the body, stretchy edging, and creating neat and tidy underarms. We’ll even talk about the best ways to try on your WIP for size. Seamless knitting is wonderful for creating well-fitted, customised garments. This class will provide you with a good bag of techniques to make the most of it!
