About This Class

Ever wanted to knit an airy, lacy shawl or baby clothes or socks or sweater?  Well, this is where you start! 

In this class we will be looking at how to work the essential stitches, then we will put them together to make a bookmark or scarf.

Before you start you need to know how to knit, purl, cast on and cast off.  That is all.

This is the first in a series of classes about lace knitting.  The second is Reading Lace Knitting Charts, and you might want to take that class alongside this one.
