Class Length: 3 hours

Class Fee:  $30.00

Class Description:

Learn and explore the basics of lace by knitting the Feather and Fan pattern! Create a scarf, a shawl, a market bag or be adventurous and make an afghan!

Learn to INCREASE, DECREASE and do combinations of INCREASES and DECREASES.

Learn to Read a Pattern, Repeat Patterns, Review a Chart and Learn to Read a Yarn Label and understand what it means.

Once you know how to knit and purl, knitting becomes even more fun when you learn to increase and decrease to create beautiful lace patterns!  Lace knitting is a combination of increases and decreases.  While it may look intricate, once you get the hang of it, it is quite simple.

Although this is an intro to lace class, students must know how to knit, purl, cast on and cast off. This class will be a good intro for beginners or a good refresher for advanced students.
