Switch A Lace StitchEver wonder why a designer picks one increase or decrease over another in a lace pattern? Let’s demystify lace stitches! In this class we will be exploring how subtle changes in your lace make a big difference in the overall look of a piece. We will be working several swatches in class to demonstrate how you can change the look of your lace just by changing a stitch or two. We will also be exploring how placement of increases and decreases can change the overall fabric. A great class for begin­ner and experienced lace knitters alike!

Technique Requirements

Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; beginner lace; pattern reading; ability to work from a chart is a plus but not a requirement.

Homework

Supplies to bring
  • 40–50 yards of smooth, light-colored worsted weight yarn
  • US 6/4mm or 7/4.5mm knitting needles (straights or circu­lars are ok; gauge is not critical for
    swatches)
  • Knitting notions (tapestry needle, stitch markers, small scis­sors, etc.)
  • Pen or pencil

Class Fee: $40, payable by PayPal, cash or check in store.
