Making up

Some people hate finishing their knits and some people love it but with these few tips you will make the process a lot smoother.

Tip 1- Always block your work before you start making it up. This makes it a lot easier to keep your sewing tidy and to see where you need to sew.

Tip 2- Pin your work into place. It makes it so much easier to sew up if you know that its going to fit together. This also means that your ribs will finish at the same time and your sleeves wont be wonky.

Tip 3 – Sew in your ends as you go. It is much nicer to sew in your ends as you sew each part. Then you know that at the end of sewing that last seam you don’t have a ton of ends still to do.

Tip 4 – Block your work again. Blocking your work at the end will make sure all the ends you tidied up will stay in place and it will make your seams relax and flatten down.


There you go! If you follow these simple rules you should have no problem with finishing your garment!
