Level: Advanced Beginner
Love the look of lace but feel intimidated by those scary looking charts? This workshop will explore all the abc's of reading and following a chart to help you create this lovely lace shawlette. Learn some tips and tricks for keeping your place, how to fix your mistakes, read your knitting and gain an understanding of how your shawlette is constructed.
Lace is both fun and endlessly variable once you learn some of the basics. We will work through the first chart together in class and then meet-up again 2 weeks later for any necessary follow-up help.
