Take a guided tour of the possibilities of center-out accessories. We will look at round, square, rectangular, and oblong projects that all begin from the center. We will construct miniature versions of these shapes while learning special cast-on methods for center-out projects. Many traditional lace and colorwork motifs can be converted to work with these shapes for spectacular results. By the end of the class, students will feel confident using these cast on methods to create center out accessories to fit their own unique style.
