The Knitting Guild of Greater Buffalo fosters the highest standards of excellence in the practice of knitting through an active program of education and study, promoting interest, appreciation, and skill in knitting.  

Knit Along: It’s time to make the cut–or just learn how to cut a steek in your Fair Isle knitting.  

There are many ways to prepare a knitted fabric for cutting. The choice you make depends on personal preference and the type of yarn that you use. Below are link to videos demonstrating a crocheted edging and a hand sewn edging; there is also a link to an article by Eunny Jang which discusses steeking in general.
