This textured laced cowl was designed as a fun and quick “first lace” project.

Description

This textured laced cowl was designed as a fun and quick “first lace” project. Lydian is also a great introduction to knitting in the round. The
lace design elements were chosen specifically for newer knitters to be able to keep their place more easily while using charts and to learn the invaluable skill of “reading” the knitting. This class is taught by the designer.

Two 2-hour classes.

Skills learned:

  • working lace in the round

  • twisted ribbing

  • reading lace charts

  • troubleshoot mistakes

  • reading your knitting

  • bind off in pattern

  • fibers best suited for lace knitting

  • finishing


Materials:

  • approximately 190 yards of worsted weight yarn, (solid or tonal hand-dyed yarns in natural fibers—no acrylic—in light to medium tones to make the lace work easy to see for first-time lace knitters.) Self-striping or heavily variegated yarn is not recommended.

  • Size#7 (4.5 mm) 16” circular needles with good points

  • 1 stitch marker

  • tapestry needle

  • copy of Lydian pattern, available on Ravelry


Homework:
Cast on 96 stitches using a long-tail cast on before the beginning of class. If you have to buy your yarn on the day of the first class, be sure to come to the
shop early enough to have your supplies purchased and your yarn wound into balls in order to have your 96-stitch cast on finished before the start of the class.

Class fees are not refundable unless the class is canceled by the shop. If cancellation is made outside of 72 hours of class start time, you will be provided with a store credit for use for any future purchase with the shop. Unless otherwise indicated, our classes are for adults only. Your registration is valid for the dates listed in the description and may not be transferred to other class dates.

We offer a full refund within 30 days on any full priced yarn, bag or clothing item in original condition with receipt. Wound yarn or yarn smelling of smoke or containing pet hair may not be returned. Unfortunately, there are no returns on gift cards, needles, notions, books, patterns or discounted yarns.
