Finishing knit and crochet tops isn’t always complete when the last end is woven in. Lacy crochet and knit tops are fun, fashionable and super great for the warm summer months but, that also means that you need to wear something under your top. Today on the Yarn Thing Podcast we are joined by a true sewing superstar, Joi Mahon. Joi will be walking us through lining knit and crochet tops.

Great topic today on your podcast. I hand knit, machine knit, crochet etc… but sewing never. Until now. I realized that I can never have to shop again if I can just learn to sew. Thank you for sharing Joi with us today. The magic formula will help me get a great fit, regardless of the craft i am doing =)
