Lace Edgings: Before, During, and After with Franklin Habit

Class Title: Lace Edgings: Before, During, and Afterlace-edgings

Teacher: Franklin Habit

Class Day/Time: Friday, 12:30 to 3:30 pm

Class Length: 3 Hours

Class Fee: $55.00

Class Description: 

Lace edgings are among the most beautiful, varied and useful patterns in the world of knitting. Applied with care and skill, they can lift an ordinary project into the extraordinary. In this class, we’ll practice several techniques for working edgings, including knitted-on, sewn-on, and simultaneous.

Participants should be comfortable with basic lace knitting skills, including working from simple charts.


Registration necessary, class size limited to 22


Supplies Needed: 

Yarn: One ball Dale Baby Ull, St-Denis Nordique, Cascade 220 Sport or equivalent in white or a light color. Wool or another non-slippery animal fiber is recommended. [Note: I suggest the above  because they are on the thin side, rip back easily, and don’t have any halo to obscure the structure of the knitting. Any yarn of a similar weight that fits those criteria should be fine. The white/light color is also important because students must be able to see what they’re doing.]

One pair US size  4 needles (8″ or longer) or circular needle (24″ suggested length). Two double-pointed needles US size 4. One crochet hook.

Notions: Scissors, yarn/tapestry needle, pen (or pencil) and paper for making notes. (In all of my classes, note-taking is highly advised!) Row counter (optional).


Materials Fee: None


Homework:  Bring to class a completed garter stitch swatch, to be worked as follows: With yarn and needles listed above, CO 20 sts, knit 20 rows (slipping the first stitch of each row with yarn in front, and knitting all stitches). Bind off loosely.


A 3.00 electronic administrative fee will be added for all online registration transactions.
