John Brinegar
Craftsy Instructor

New York City

I have many crafty interests, mainly focusing on knitting, teaching knitting classes, and designing for Vogue Knitting. I began crocheting when I was 17, and have been involved in some sort of craft, art, handwork, visual stimulation ever since. As of August, 2015 I am back in school pursuing my RN degree. I am very excited about this new adventure, and am looking forward to new challenges and new life experiences.

Seaming Beyond the Basics

Discover an accessible and enlightening approach to seaming virtually any knitting project with designer John Brinegar. Highlight your finishing with decorative seams such as the single-lock suture, double-lock suture and continuous suture. Master the mattress stitch for invisible seams, plus use it to finish projects worked in tricky yarns and textures such as mohair and lace. Learn to seam regular shoulder seams and stair-stepped shoulder seams, and seam a perfect shoulder line in cables and lace. Ease unequal pieces of fabric together and set in textured sleeves with no stress. Finish your most daring feats of knitting with professional-looking seams and no finishing frustrations!
