A treatment outlines a process which can be carried out to alter an existing item of knitwear.

Each treatment has its own page, including:

  • Instructions for one or more methods for carrying out the treatment
  • Patterns to be used for the treatment
  • Advice on how to adapt the instructions and patterns selected
This resource is an evolving work in progress. The menu below shows each treatment, and the sections that have been developed for them so far.
