Create a vision in lace as if an angel’s wings draped about your shoulders. Using the elegant technique of yarn-over increases paired with decreases, learn to knit lace in a triangular shape. The class will start with how to make a garter stitch tab as the cast-on at the nape of the neck and will cover the skills (including various ways to incorporate beads) needed to work down to the shaping of the bound-off edge.
PREREQ: Know how to cast on, knit, purl and bind off.
SUPPLIES: circular knitting needles (size 7 or 8), one ball of DK or worsted weight yarn, movable stitch markers.
