Various edges are achieved by working different cast-ons and bind-offs.

In this class you'll learn:
  • How to make a perfect slip knot

  • How to work the standard bind-off, suspended bind-off, k2tog bind-off, lace bind-off and three-needle bind-off

Excellent class. I only wish a provisional cast on and been included. I never knew there were so many different bind off methods!

I've been knitting since I was 14, was taught only 1 cast on and bind off technique, and was not always happy with the results. This class is really fun, the directions are clear, and my results are beautiful! I'm glad I took the time to watch your preview video and purchased this class.

This is an excellent class with an excellent down to earth teacher. All her instructions made sense and were easy to follow. I would love to take other of her classes.

Thanks for clear instructions and reminding me there are various ways to cast on and off, some I knew others not. Will be coming back to it.

Thanks Kate! I was able to learn a lot. This class goes along well with the Learn to Knit class I started with a few weeks ago. I am relearning how to knit after learning the basic knit and purl back in the 1980's.
