As a knitter, probably one of the scariest things to think about is cutting your knitting and watching all your work unravel. Well that is exactly what you do when you steek. I have never cut my knitting until recently when I decided to change a pullover into a cardigan. And I have to tell you, yes, it was scary but also so much fun!
Here is the pullover I started with. It is the Turtle Dove Sweater by Escape Tricot. The pattern is great and it knit up quickly but it is just too oversized for me. I ripped it out once and remade it so the armholes where smaller but it still was not something I would wear.
In comes steeking! So I decided instead of ripping it all out, I would make it into an oversized cardigan!
Here is a short video of the cutting of the steek. I will have some resources for you in upcoming posts if you are interested in trying it out for yourself!
