Let's Take a Deep Dive!

We all have our old favorite cast-on and bind-off methods, but there's something special about using the right one for the job. Some projects benefit from a special technique, and this exploratory workshop will take you through 50+ (and counting!) cast-on and bind-off techniques in detail. If you've ever wished you could sit down with a teacher and learn every technique imaginable, you'll love this comprehensive workshop with expert knitter, designer and author, Marie Greene of Olive Knits! Regularly $129 - Sale price $99 for a limited time!

  • Find out what makes each technique useful, and how to incorporate it into your projects
