JC17 Seamless Scarves with Built-In Fringes
with Gayle Roehm
A fringed border can be a nice finish or embellishment for a scarf or other garment, but cut yarn fringes tend to wear out quickly. This class will introduce you to three types of fringe that are actually knitted onto your scarf (or other garment) as you work. We’ll also use a method of seamless construction that allows you to add borders without breaking your yarn. Intermediate students should be able to increase, decrease, and pick up stitches from a knitted edge.
Participants bring: An assortment of smooth yarns (2 or 3 balls) and appropriate size needles with which you are comfortable using, at least 1 extra needle or crochet hook and note taking materials.
