Closure - Kate Atherley

  • PNE Hastings Room 1 2901 East Hastings Street Vancouver, BC, V5K 5J1 Canada (map)

This class is all about two key garment finishing details: dealing with buttons and zippers.

We begin with a discussion of buttonholes: what's the best method to make them, how to keep them tidy and neat. And then once you've got the holes, we talk about how to attach the buttons to make sure they stay on and don't get loose. And then, of course, if you don't want buttons, zippers are an option.

We'll talk about how to insert a zipper into knits. And we'll also explore some ways to join without any external hardware at all!

Supplies to bring: 4.5mm needles for working flat, and some scrap worsted weight yarn
