Introduction to Lace Knitting

with Evelyn Clark

1–4pm

Knitters in Nordic countries often added lace to embellish mittens, wrist warmers, scarves, and shawls. Learn the basics of how to match yarn-overs with decreases while knitting a small sampler that can later be used as a coaster or mug mat. Students will be able to practice a variety of stitch decreases, shaping techniques, and reading charts.

Student Skills Required: Basic knitting experience

Cost: $30 for Members, $35 general admission

Supply List (to be purchased by participants ahead of class):

  • 50 yds (45 m) worsted weight yarn (such as Cascade 220 wool or dishcloth cotton yarn)
  • Appropriate size needles for yarn—usually US 7 or 8 (4.5 or 5 mm) needles
  • Tapestry needle
  • Safety pin or split ring marker
  • Scissors
