Event date

Cost: $85; Pre-Registration Required

Shetland lace probably is the best-documented style of lace knitting, and traditional shawls were made in a variety of shapes and sizes. This garter stitch lace often includes biasing stitches to show off the color changes and a variety of interesting edgings. In class, we will talk about the characteristics of Shetland wool, look at 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 triangular shawl with a lace border. Later the pattern can be used to create a modernized hap shawl with a traditional Old Shale lace border.

Skill Level: Intermediate

What to Bring: Small amount of Shetland/sport/DK or worsted weight yarn in 2 light to medium colors; Knitting needles one size larger than normally used for yarn, and one double-pointed needle in same size for edging

Other Information: Please bring all your usual knitting supplies.
