These classes will be held via Zoom. You will receive a link to the zoom sessions after registration.
Do you love to knit lace, but are getting tired of making shawls? Show off your skills in a gorgeous summer topper. The construction is a bit tricky, but your teacher will be (virtually) right beside you. You will get comfortable with Kitchener stitch and the three-needle bind-off, and end up with a piece that will kick your jeans and t-shirt up to the next level.
Instructor: Jean Carter
Prerequisites: Basic knitting skills plus a comfortable level of experience with lace knitting. This is not a beginner class.
Homework: Work a good-sized gauge swatch in pattern and BLOCK IT. In this piece, the ROW gauge is even more important than the stitch gauge. Once you know your gauge, we can discuss which size to choose in class.
Skills Learned: Integrating lace into a garment, 3-needle bind-off, Kitchener stitch, pick-up-and-knit, provisional cast on.
Materials Required: Ripple Lake pattern by Joji Locatelli (can be purchased in the store, or downloaded here.) Yarn as called for in the pattern. Needles, at least 24” long, in size needed to get gauge. Crochet hook somewhere in the neighborhood of an E or F. Thin cotton yarn or string for provisional cast on. I recommend Aunt Lydia’s size 3 crochet cotton, widely available at craft stores. Stitch markers, both locking and non-locking.
All class materials must be purchased from Warm n Fuzzy.
