In this episode of Knitting Daily TV we’re examining finishing techniques – those final steps at the end of the project that have a big effect on the final look.

Preview Episode 404:


Back to Basics:
Eunny starts with a seaming primer: from knit to knit, to invisible and much more. Download more tips and tricks for better knitting.


Designer Spotlight:
Join Eunny on location with Jennifer Edgar from Eucalan as she demonstrates garment washing for professional finish.

Regarding the alternative cast on for crochet - how do I finish my last row to look the same as the start.  I'm making a dish cloth and I didn't want to go around the cloth with a decortive stitch.

Regarding the mattress stitch, I wish you would have pulled the seams apart so we could see how the seam looks like from the right side.  Yes it looks invisible but when you pull it apart it looks different and I might have forgotten exactly how to do it because the new item I'm seaming looks different from my past projects.

Panbe dress how do you get from 124 stitches on the body  to 202 stitches on the yoke. Stitches are reduced on the body and increase in the yoke.  Hope do you connect the sleeves to the  dress.  How the  stitches  made on the sleeves . I have had different people look at this pattern. I have been working on this pattern since March and I have redone this pattern  three to four times

HELP   Benay

Can't remember exactly how to do the crochet cast on. Was hoping to see it here somewhere but I can't find it if it is. Love the show
