My First Lace Shawl
March 30, 2019 9am - 12pm, April 6, 2019 9am - 12pm, April 13, 2019 9am - 12pm
This fun class will introduce new knitters to the wonderful world of lace. These 3 classes will take you through all of the steps to create your first shawl. Step-by-step instructions will teach you the basics, starting with a garter-tab cast-on, yarnovers, reading lace charts, a stretchy bind-off (maybe even 2!), and getting you ready to block your creation.
The pattern booklets and yarn are included in the cost of the class. You only need to bring a few notions (see below) and your needles. Enjoy learning a whole lot of new skills while you knit your first triangle lace shawl!

You must know how to cast-on, knit, purl, and bind off.
