This beautiful, classic stranded knitting pattern includes learning how to steek, a technique of knitting extra stitches for the express purpose of cutting them later. Yep! With scissors. This pretty pillow gives you the opportunity to learn how to steek (think your future stranded knitting sweater) on something smaller and less anxiety-provoking. We've got a great instructor too, Peg Mayor, who has knitted tons of things with steeks including sweaters! And actually, when you learn how to knit and open a steek, you'll decide it really is a great technique! Class Fee: $40
