Description

Learn to work a fancy knitted-on border while creating the elegant, semi-circular Carolan lace shawl in this class taught by the designer.

Two two-hour classes.

Skills needed:

experience increasing and decreasing, and basic familiarity with lace charts.

Skills learned:

  • Garter tab

  • Semi-circular construction

  • Knitted-on border

  • Learning to “read” your knitting

  • Troubleshooting and fixing mistakes

  • Stretchy lace bind offs

  • Blocking lace


Materials:

  • Approximately 660-720 yards of fingering weight or sock yarn. We suggest either solid or tonal hand-dyed yarns in natural fibers (no acrylic). If you are not an experienced lace knitter, light or medium colors are highly recommended in order to be able to see your stitches easily. Self-striping or heavily variegated yarn is not recommended.

  • US#5 (3.75 mm) 32” circular needles

  • US#8 (5.00 mm) double pointed or straight needle

  • 4 stitch markers

  • Tapestry needle

  • Copy of Carolan pattern found here

  • Blocking supplies (to be discussed in more detail in the class, can be purchased later)


Homework:

Be sure to come to the shop early enough to have your supplies purchased and your yarn wound into balls before the start of class.
