years I tried to learn how to knit lace, and was frustrated as I failed
each time. I finally gave up because I wanted to have fun knitting and
enjoy my hobby. I was able to knit cables, fair isle, intarsia, and
even entrelac with no problems, but lace stymied me over and over
again. I thought I would never be able to knit lace, until I stumbled
onto Dorothy Reade’s simple techniques.
from charts, understanding decreases, and knitting with worsted-weight
yarn and larger needles gave me the confidence and practice I needed to
ease into lace knitting. If I learned how to knit lace after years of
frustration and failure, I know other knitters can, too!
this workshop we will discuss the tools and yarns used to knit lace,
learn how to follow lace charts, and make one swatch in worsted-weight
yarn and one in sport-weight yarn. Students will then be ready to knit
a lace-weight swatch on their own, and move on to making a simple
project such as a lace scarf or hat.
Level: For the advanced-beginner to intermediate knitter. Students
should know how to cast on, bind off, knit, and purl, and should have
completed several projects.
Size 7 and 5 US straight needles
approx 50 yards of worsted-weight and
sport-weight yarn in any animal fiber, light colors are best,
sticky notes (recommended) or row counter, and
basic knitting tools.
