Learn how to use different cast on and bind off techniques to create perfect edges for your knitting projects.

There are so many amazing cast ons and bind offs in knitting - and the cast on and bind off method for your projects can be crucial for how your project looks, feels and fits. Your edges can make all the difference between a project that just isn’t working and one that’s exactly what you imagined.

If you learned how to cast on and bind off when you did your first knitting project and you’ve only ever used those two methods ever since, or you’ve made your first jumper or pair of socks, and the cuffs are too small to fit over your wrists or ankles, or the neckline was too small to fit over your head, then this class is for you!

You will learn:

In this practical class we’ll be learning a selection of different cast ons and bind offs to knit perfect edges - neat ones, stretchy ones, decorative ones and more. Learn their pros and cons and the situations you’d want to use them in. Kat will guide you through each edging technique as you practice it in class.

Skills required: Adventurous beginners and more advanced knitters will all enjoy this hands-on class.

  • One 50g ball of 8 or 10 ply yarn

Your teacher: Katrina Walser

Kat doesn’t remember who taught her the knit stitch, but she does remember that her mum noticed her knitting and taught her how to cast on, bind off and purl. After getting fixated on cross stitch in high school, she picked up her knitting needles again during uni and hasn’t put them down since. She published her first design in 2016 and now has over 20 patterns listed on Ravelry. She’s taught countless friends and colleagues to knit and has taught classes at the Etsy headquarters in New York, and is very excited whenever she gets to teach people new skills in the knitting world!
