Lace, Tips & Techniques
In this class, we’ll take a deeper look into some of the trickier lace patterns. We’ll review some more complicated stitches, multiple yarn overs, nupps, cross stitches, and some of the common manipulations seen in doilies. We’ll learn how to turn a set of written instructions into a chart, and we’ll discuss tricks to help a less-intuitive stitch pattern work for you. You’ll become less dependent on charts and patterns, and know how to judiciously use stitch markers. We’ll end with a look out how to repair some common mistakes in lace knitting. Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; increase/decrease; beginner lace; chart reading
