Learn to knit a chunky lace shawl! In this class we will learn the garter tab cast on, how to work basic lace stitches and read lace charts and how to work a great stretchy cast off. At the end of this class, you will be able to work a full sized chunky lace shawl of your own to any size using the pattern included in the class. This is a great class for knitters who are confident knitting and purling.
A pattern is also included with the class.
Level / Ability
It is a good class for students who are confident knitting and purling. The rest you will learn!
Participants will need 50g of chunky yarn (already wound and ready to knit) and 6mm needles.
