Class: Bridgewater - Knit a Small Shawl

November 2 and 9, 2009 | 6-8 PM | $60 | homework required before class

Are you as fascinated by lace as the rest of us? Learn many a new technique with Bridgewater, a knitted lace shawl from the new Classic Elite Jared Flood book, Made In Brooklyn! This shawl is made as a biased garter stitch square, picking up stitches evenly around and adding a lace motif, and then finished off with a knitted on edging.

We will be doing a mini version of this for the class; students must knit the garter stitch square prior to the first class (instructions will be available in the shop). The first class is picking up stitches and working the lace motif; the second class will be the knitted edging.

What you need to know how to do:
- cast on
- the knit stitch
- the purl stitch
- bind off

What we'll teach you how to do:
- common increases and decreases in lace knitting
- how to pick up stitches evenly around a square piece
- how to block lace

What materials are included:
- pattern
- needles appropriate to yarn
- Classic Elite Silky Alpaca Lace

Included in the price of this class is a lace blocking workshop, which will be held on Monday, November 16th. You are not required to take this class in order to take the blocking workshop (seats in that class may be purchased for $15), however it is free if you are taking this class.

Classes do fill up early; so please reserve your space in the class by paying in advance as it is unlikely we will be able to accommodate walk-ins. Payment is required within 7 days of signing up for the class or within one week before the class begins (whichever comes first). All classes limited to five people unless otherwise stated. A minimum of 2 students is required for most classes to take place. If the minimum for a class is not reached within 48 hours of the class, we will cancel the class and contact you in regards to rescheduling or a refund. Individual classes/lessons available by request (prices may vary). Homework is required in most of our classes; we know that all of you have busy schedules but please be sure to allow time to finish the work needed for classes.
