Conquering Kitchener Stitch with Ann Budd


From 12 pm until 1 pm

At Zoom Meeting


Are you intimidated by the Kitchener stitch? Meet it head-on with Ann Budd and overcome your fears of this too-often dreaded stitch, whether it’s used on stockinette stitch, reverse stockinette stitch, garter stitch, ribbing, or even the tubular bind-off.

In this one-hour seminar, Ann will demystify the mechanics of this excellent finishing stitch and present a simple way to remember the sequence of steps that produce a perfect finish for toes of socks, tips of mittens, hems of hats and sweaters, and a “seamless” way to join two sets of live stitches. An illustrated handout of the various techniques will be provided.

If you’d like to practice the techniques demonstrated, you’ll need worsted-weight yarn, size U.S. 7 (4.5 mm) knitting needles, a tapestry needle, and seven homework swatches. You'll receive swatching instructions when you register.
