Squam, Art & Workshops/ Honey Plum shawl

Honey plum shawl

I Love Lace :Honey Plum

Offered:

Thursday June 7th

Experience level: All Levels*

Are you looking for a gentle introduction to lace knitting? Or, perhaps you already have some experience with lace, but are curious for ways to grow and refine your technique? Either way– this is the perfect choice. In this class, Melody will guide you through lace construction using her lovely Honey Plum pattern as your base. Not only will you be diving into all the ins and outs of knitting lace, you will end up on the other side with a cosy wrap that is perfect for morning walks or sipping tea.

Melody will be addressing the anatomy of lace stitches as well as highlighting the benefits of learning to read chart and written instructions. As you cast on your miniature version of the shawl, you’ll warm up with some meditative garter stitch before delving into the delicate lace variations in this garment:

  • Shetland lace
  • Estonian braid

Have no worries that Melody will leave you before the finish line.  This class will wrap up with Melody teaching the perfect Picot bind off to decorate those edges. And, she will have you all set for when it’s time for you to block your shawl with a lace-blocking demonstration for when you’re successfully cast off.

to Aug 6

Hill View Farm - Creativity Festival -

I am so excited to be a part of the Hill View Farm Festivial teaching team! During the weekend I will be teaching a class on the Myst shawl, which will be a great introduction to simple lace knitting! We will learn how to make increases and decreases to create lace, how to read a chart, provisionnal cast on with a crochet hook, and pick up provsional stitches. At the end of the class you will have a mini version of the shawl, so you'll have all the techniques you need to make the full version or to knit any other simple lace piece!

Sign ups for the class and the other workshops are now open!
