Learn to knit the Lucy Lightfoot Lace Beret
16 November, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm£45
Knitting lace takes you on journeys with yarn that are as rich with adventure and complexity as the beautiful fabric you create. Based on making stable holes between your stitches, knitted lace is both textured and delicate.
Join Jane Lithgow for this project-based introduction to lace knitting that will get you started with all the stitches used in her beautiful new beret pattern and learn to love the holes between your stitches.
In this class you will learn:
- How to swatch lace
- The principles of lace knitting and how the holes and corresponding decreases shape the fabric
- How to block your lace knitting and properly expose the finished pattern so that it blooms.
- How to read instructions including abbreviations and charts for lace patterns
