What’s it all about?

If you have basic knitting skills and want to try something new come along and learn how to knit lace. Lace can be used in a variety of ways when knitting – in hats, socks, jumpers, scarves or shawls and you can use a little or a lot – it’s all up to you! It’s not as challenging as you might think and once you know how it works you are on a knitting journey to somewhere new.

What will we cover?

  • How to work increases and decreases to create a lace fabric.
  • How to select the right yarn for your lace projects.
  • Handy tips and hints the experts use to get the best results.
  • Understand the difference between written and charted lace patterns.

​If you are bringing your own materials, please bring:

  • Needles size 4.0mm or 4.5mm
  • One or two small balls of wool (50g size is good) in 8, 5 or 4 ply
