Knitted Lace Edgings

Class Description

Adding bits of lace beauty to common objects

Knitted lace edgings are a beautiful addition to garments, linens, and accessories. Because these trims are typically done on just a few stitches, they are a practical way to explore the structure and techniques of knitted lace.

Great for introductory lace knitters, as well as those wanting to advance their understanding of what knitted lace is all about.

Students will use both written and charted patterns, and learn to make their own charts. Methods for attaching lace, mitering, grafting, and blocking will be covered.

Knitted Lace Edgings

bath towel, linen doily center, and baby sock cuff
  • Prerequisites: Basic knitting skills. No experience in knitting lace needed.
  • Students supply their own yarn/thread and needles.
  • Additional student materials fee: $10 per student (includes class workbook).
  • Duration: 3 - 9 hours. The longer version of class allows more thorough coverage of topics and time to make class mini-projects.
