Introduction to Lace
If you've been drooling over the lacey wraps that have seemed to be everywhere for the past couple of years (Ambah O'Brien and Joji Locatelli, we're looking at you) - but have despaired because you're intimidated by the thought of knitting LACE, we're here with the class you've been waiting for!
Lindsey has designed the Horsefeathers Cowl to help you ease into the world of putting holes in your knitting on purpose. In this four-hour class, you'll learn about reading charts, using lifelines, recognizing "landmark stitches," using stitch markers, and blocking your work. Knitting lace will become a technique you'll look forward to!
