Class: introduction to Lace Knitting

July 8, 15, 22, and 29 (Wednesday) | 6:00-8:00 | $110

Have you been knitting for a while but have not yet ventured into lace knitting? If you can knit, purl, cast on, and bind off, this introductory class on lace knitting is just the thing for you.

During the four weeks of this class, a pillow will be made that will teach you both a basic lace pattern, and one that is slightly more advanced. We will be using a slightly thicker yarn than laceweight, so there’s no need to be afraid of tiny yarn! You will also learn how to read a chart, about the importance of blocking, and some basic techniques on how you can still save your work even after making a few mistakes.
