Description: Prepare for the perfect finishing before casting on the first stitch!

I will show you the main techniques to master the best stretchy, in pattern or sturdy cast-on and bind-offs for your handknits.

Program:

- introduction to finishing techniques: plan ahead where do you need a more stretchy or sturdy cast-on or bind-off

- cast-on techniques: cable cast-on (knitted and ribbing); Italian tubular cast-on for 1x1 ribbing; stretchy cast-on; provisional cast-on (Judy´s magic cast-on)

- bind-off techniques: bind-off in ribbing patterns; Judy´s surprisingly stretchy bind-off; Italian sewn tubular bind-off
