The Art of Professional Finishing
All parts of a sweater are done. What’s next? Learn how to make your project even more beautiful with correct finishing steps. Faina will teach a variety of methods for blocking, seaming, picking up stitches for necklines, button bands and other edges, bind offs, collar shaping and much more. If you do it right, you will love your sweater.
