We’re going to do it! We’re going to cut into our knitting! Steeking is a shortcut used to knit colorwork sweaters in the round without interruption for openings or sleeves until the end. After completing a tube, a straight line is cut along the center of a column of stitches, in order to make room for an opening or place to attach another piece. First we’ll learn to follow a colorwork chart and then we’ll steek our tube to create a coffee cozy!
Materials: 2 colors of worsted weight yarn (at least 50 yards each). US7 double-pointed needles or 40-inch circular for magic loop, crochet hook.
Skill level: This is suitable for graduates of Knit 2 or those comfortable working in the round on double points or magic loop.
