FINISHING

  1. Weave in ends.
     
  2. Block the garment focusing on the edges to square sides; you might need to stretch the bottom a little more to match the length of the top of the garment.

Lining - simple version

  1. Measure the finished knitted item.
     
  2. Cut the lining fabric according to the final size of the knitted item – allowing a little extra for the seams.
     
  3. Fold the lining fabric in half with RS together and sew side seams using sewing thread.
     
  4. Fold knitted item in half with RS together so that cast on and top edges meet and sew side seams using the knitting yarn.
     
  5. Turn the knitted case so the RS is facing. Insert the lining fabric inside the case and pin down the fabric to the wrong side of the knitted item with wrong sides together. Fold the seam allowance at the top of the case to match the edge of the knitted item and sew together. With sewing thread, sew fold at bottom of lining to fold of knit piece.
     
  6. Insert a zipper and sew in place.
     
  7. With a sewing thread sew around the outer openings to create little pockets, (sewing together the knitted item and the lining fabric - take extra care not to sew to the other side of the case by mistake).

Lining - advanced version (internal divisions)

  1. The internal divider of the lining is approximately 1 inch shorter than the full height of the case.
     
  2. Measure the finished knitted item.
     
  3. Cut the lining fabric 8 inches longer than the final height of the knitted item, allowing a little extra on all sides for the seams.
     
  4. Fold the lining in half with WS together (A to A, B to B) (see diagram for guidance) – sew a line at the top of the fold to secure the fold, sew a second line 4 inches away from the center fold through both thicknesses of lines AB to create the internal divider.
     
  5. Fold the lining fabric with RS together, with the center fold inside and seam AB at bottom, sew side seams together through all thicknesses. The double thickness of fabric from the center fold to seam AB is the center divider of the lining.
     
  6. Fold knitted item in half with RS together so that cast on and top edges meet and sew side seams using the knitting yarn.
     
  7. With RS of knitted case facing, insert the lining fabric inside the case and pin down the fabric to the wrong side of the knitted item, making sure the center divider is in the middle of the case. Fold the seam allowance at the top of the case to match the edge of the knitted item and sew together. With sewing thread, sew line AB to folded edge of knitted piece.
     
  8. Insert a zipper and sew together.
     
  9. With a sewing thread sew around the outer openings to create little pockets, (sewing together the knitted item and the lining fabric - take extra care not to sew to the other side of the case by mistake).
