18may6:30 am9:00 pmLearn to 'Steek'A steek is a narrow panel of extra stitches with the intention that they will be cut open once the knitting is complete!

Event Details

Learn the art of Steeking – a traditional Shetland method of cutting into fairisle knitting, to open up necklines, cardigan fronts and sleeve holes. It can be quite daunting to cut through your knitting but once mastered ‘Steeking’ will revolutionise your knitting!

The technique can also be adapted to upcycle certain ready made manufactured knitwear items.

We are honoured to be welcoming back Jill Blugan (known in the online knitting community as ‘Knit with Jill’) for a guest appearance. Please note this is a one off workshop.


On completion of this workshop, participants will confidently be able to: 

– Understand how and where to incorporate a ‘steek’ into your knitting

– Explore the convenience of knitting on the round and then being able to cut open the knitting

– Realise the benefits for creating continuous intricate pattern designs.

– Cut open your knitting confidently without it unravelling!

– Add an enhanced skill to your knitting tool kit!
