Intro to Lace Knitting
An in-person class with Lisa Myers
Nov 11, 9:00am-12:00pm PST
All you need to get started with lace knitting is a yarnover and a couple of different ways to decrease. Join Lisa to learn to put them together and create lace.
From the simplest of eyelet accents to the most complex gossamer-weight shawls, lace patterns create some of the most beautiful knitting there is – and also some of the most intimidating. Like all knitting, though, it’s composed of a small number of basic elements. All you need to get started is a yarnover and a couple of different ways to decrease (though an ability to read charted patterns is a great help). This class will teach these basic elements (including chart reading) and the fundamental principles of combining them. We’ll take a developmental approach that will give you the ability to “read“ your knitting. Come learn the art of making holes in your knitting – deliberately!
