World Traditions, Lace
Lace motifs and stitch patterns from different regions of the world share many aesthetic qualities, yet each region has its own special focus. Join Brooke as you explore the lesser-known Japanese lace stitches and motifs. Japanese lace motifs often include twisted stitches and cables, which add a unique textural element to the knitted fabric. As an added bonus, these stitch patterns often look beautiful on both sides of the fabric, making them great options for scarves and stoles! Leave class with a sampling of various stitch patterns and motifs as well.
