Justyna Lorkowska will be chatting with us on Sunday April 16th. Her topic will be Knitted-On Borders - A Perfect Finish!
They can be simple or intricate, lacy or cabled—your choice—one thing is sure: knitted-on borders give a unique touch to a shawl, or length to a sweater. This Chat with Justyna will focus on how to attach knitted-on borders to a variety of shawl types (and garments!), how to create your own border pattern, and how to determine the amount of yarn you’ll need. Learn how to make your garment one of a kind!
