Description

Caine is a richly textured, asymmetrical lace shawl that is the perfect introduction to lace knitting and chart reading. The basket weave and textured eyelet patterns in this shawl look complicated but are intuitive to knit and easy to memorize. A comprehensive overview of everything you need to know to knit and block beautiful lace.

Two 2-hour classes
Skills learned:

  • Reading lace charts

  • How to increase the size

  • Stretchy bind off

  • Using a lifeline

  • Reading your knitting

  • Fixing lace mistakes

  • Fibers for lace knitting

  • Blocking


Materials:

  • Approximately 565 yards of worsted weight yarn. We suggest either 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.
