Expand your knitting skills! If you know how to cast on, knit and purl, you are ready for this beginning lace class. While knitting the classic Feather and Fan lace pattern, you will learn the logic of lace knitting and how to read a chart in addition to following written instructions.

The pattern is included with the class. Options for knitting a scarf (flat knitting) or a cowl (knitting in the round) are included. We will go over both methods.

Taught by Chiaki Hayashi.

Cost $40

To make a scarf, please bring:

1) Approximately 260 yards of DK- or worsted-weight yarn. Choose a yarn that is smooth and a solid, light color (this will make your stitches easier to see and work). Suggested yarns - Malabrigo Rios, Tosh DK, Berroco Ultra Alpaca, Cascade 220, Liberty Wool.
2) Needles of a size appropriate for your yarn choice (DK-weight yarn typically uses US#6, worsted-weight yarns US#7 or #8). Straight needles are recommended.
3) Locking stitch markers or safety pins
