Description

Notable knitter and designer Deborah Newton shares her expertise and love of finishing techniques in an on-the-page master class.

Finishing School is THE most trusted resource on finishing techniques for knitting. Compiling her sage wisdom from more than 25 years of experience, Deborah Newton offers a welcoming and straightforward approach that empowers knitters to create professional-looking garments and accessories. She patiently takes her student-readers through every essential finishing technique--blocking, seaming, buttonholes and bands, zippers, edgings, pockets, and other embellishments--and carefully demystifies it with detailed photography, in-depth examples, and helpful sidebars, tips, and tutorials. As a bonus, 15 patterns for sweaters, jackets, and scarves, many with variations, illustrate the newly learned techniques to further cement essential skills.
