Fixing Mistakes in Lace Knitting
Sunday, July 21, 12-3pm, $60
Everyone who knits lace does it eventually – while working a lace shawl you discover a mistake several rows back. If you’ve inserted a life line, you can rip back safely, but what if you don’t have a life line, or what if you don’t want to rip out all 100+ stitches simply to repair a few of them? In this class, we will discuss how to fix mistakes big and small in your lace knitting. We’ll practicing laddering up stitches in pattern using a crochet hook. We’ll also learn how to rip out a repeat of 10+ stitches, leaving the rest intact and re-knitting only those stitches.
For adventurous knitters comfortable with lace knitting. Bring a small crochet hook, DPNs size US4 or 5, and stitch markers. Pre-class homework assignment will be provided.
Brooke’s class size is very limited, so call now to register, 570-287-9999.
