Episode 502 – Finishing Touches

Finishing a garment you've made by hand is an entirely different skill from actually knitting or crocheting. You don't need to avoid patterns with finishing because on this episode of Knitting Daily TV we tackle finishing fears with tips and techniques for giving your projects that final, professional look.
