Cost: $85; Pre-Registration Required

Icelandic lace was used for an interesting variety of wrist warmers, scarves, and triangular and long (rectangular) shawls. In this class, we will look at the long shawls and talk about the interesting stitches and dramatic edgings the Icelanders used for their stockinette stitch lace. Also, we will look at the characteristics of Icelandic wool and examples of the lace and discuss pattern resources.

Tips will be given on how to read charts and splice yarns, and students can knit a small sampler with a lace border. Later the pattern can be used to create a rectangular lace scarf or wrap.

Skill Level: Intermediate

What to Bring: Small amount of Icelandic Einband lace, Shetland/sport/DK, or worsted weight yarn in one or more light to medium colors; Knitting needles one size larger than normally used for yarn.

Other Information: Please bring all your usual knitting supplies.
