Knitting, Intermediate II - Working with Lace (C/S008)Lace can be knitted into so many projects, scarves, sweaters, hats. Beautiful, romantic, ethereal lace. But it can also be intimidating. Those charts, and all those yarn overs and decreases! How do you keep it all straight? We'll start with a shawlette pattern, a smallish shawl that could be worn as a scarf. We'll talk about following a chart, correcting mistakes and blocking your finished piece to show off your handiwork to its best effect. You will need about 100 grams (or about 420 yards) of fingering weight yarn (sometimes called sock yarn) and a size 5 (3.75 mm) circular needle, 32 inches suggested but anything longer than 24 inches should work fine. Patterns will be provided by instructor. You need to know how to cast on, knit, purl and bind off. Register early; class size limited to 6 students.
