What It's All About

We know! You've been waiting to take a class to learn lace. And we've picked the most popular pattern in our store for the project. Take this three part workshop and learn how to knit lace, read charts, use markers and lifelines to keep track of your work and rip back (if you must) without losing everything. You'll also learn how to change colours, bind off smoothly, weave in your ends and block your finished piece. 

Skill Level

Advanced Beginner - Experienced. You can follow a pattern and know the difference between stocking stitch and garter stitch. You can make increases and decreases (on purpose) and you've had to pull back a few stitches or even a whole row or two and put it back on your needle. Most importantly, you can work a minimum of 20 minutes each day on your project (between classes). This project has a lot of knitting between classes so time to work each day is very important for you to get the most out of this class. 

Please bring:

  • your copy of the Hot Shawl pattern (we recommend making a photocopy that you can write on)
  • the yarn required for the size of shawl you want to knit in two or more colours; and
  • a 3.75 mm circular needle, 80 cm or longer and a minimum of 4 stitch markers (you'll only need four to start but more will come in handy later).

Includes:

  • 6 hours of instruction on everything you need to know to enjoy knitting lace
  • pro tips and helpful ideas to improve your knitting skills
