How to Knit Necklines and Armholes

In this workshop I will show you how to knit a round neckline, a V neckline and how to knit armholes for the traditional set-in sleeves. In a simple way and without much math, I will show you how to master proportions. I’ll even teach you the best tricks to get perfect finishes. This way you can create your own necklines or adapt the instructions of the pattern to always achieve impeccable finishes. As usual in all my workshops I’ll be showing how to work in continental, Portuguese and English knitting styles.
