Lace knitter/designer Sivia Harding will be offering two project-based lace classes suitable for beginning to intermediate lace knitters.
If you’ve always wanted to knit lace but thought it was too hard, this is the class for you! The majority of the shoulderette is knit in relaxing garter stitch. You will do some shoulder shaping for a great fit, learn how to read charts and create simple lace stitches. The pattern finishes with a sideways-knit lace border—a miniature work of art! The following materials are used for this project: 300 yards of fingering or sport weight yarn (e.g., one skein of Smooshy, Malabrigo Sock or Misti Alpaca Sock, or two skeins of Koigu, Alpaca Sport or Alpaca Silk), stitch markers and a 3.75 mm circular needle.
Norwegian Woods Shawl
A perfect introduction to shaped lace, this top-down triangle scarf or shawl features three easy-to-knit lace patterns that can be easily customized, resulting in a shawl unique to each knitter. Students learn a simple beading technique along with everything you need to know to knit lace, including reading charts. The following materials are used for this project: Lace yarn (sample is shown in Malabrigo Lace, one skein for the scarf and two skeins for the shawl) and size 3.25 mm Addi Turbo Lace Needles.
Norwegian Woods: Sundays, 7-9 pm, February 22, March 1, 8 and 15
Victorian Shoulderette: Mondays, 7-9 pm, March 16, 23 and 30
