In this workshop students will learn the basic principles of lace knitting, how to properly work a yarnover, strategies for keeping track of their work, how to undo mistakes (very important), and how to insert and use a lifeline.
We will also tease out the stitch multiple from the pattern instructions, and discuss how to bind off loosely and block the finished shawl. Students will learn new techniques on a small swatch in class and cast on for their project before the end of the session.
