Kyle Kunnecke says it best when he says: "The thought of taking scissors to a freshly bound-off bit of knitting has been known to make knitters break out in hives. But with a bit of knowledge and proper preparation, you can learn to steek without fear. It’s a technique that can open the door to exciting new adventures.
Steeking is most often used when dividing the fronts of a colorwork cardigan knit in the round (such as the Susurrous Cardigan, by Olya Mikesh), but that’s not where its uses end. Consider steeking for any project that is essentially a divided tube. The body of a V-neck pullover can be knit entirely in the round, with steeks at the armholes and front neck. This can allow the colors in a self-striping or patterning yarn to flow smoothly from upper to lower body and keep the stripe pattern consistent on front and back. You might even choose to use steeks for a single-color project if your gauge when working flat is different from your gauge working in the round, or if you simply prefer to avoid purling."
This technique is so cool. Join us for this special class where we will learn how to steek from an expert knitting teacher. Class is held at Village Laine Yarn Cafe in Ajax, Ontario.
