Unveiling the Anatomy of the Stitch
Knitting a Triangular Lace Shawl with Lisa Daehlin

Saturday, April 17th; 2-5pm @  Knitty City – 208 W. 79th St. (Broadway/Amsterdam) Upper West Side of NYC

REGISTER:  212.PURL-TWO (212.787.5896)

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.

INSTRUCTOR:  Lisa Daehlin is a knitting designer and opera singer. She is a continuing education faculty member at Cooper Union. Her designs can be seen walking the streets of Manhattan as well as on the pages of Interweave Knits, Knit 1 and Vogue Knitting Magazines as well as featured in the Lace Style and Bag Style books published by Interweave Press.

    Dear Lisa,
    So nice to hear from you. If I am free I would love to join your class. Any preparatory information I should have?

      Great to hear from you as well. Contact Knitty City to register. Then bring your fabulous personality and we’re good to go. 😉 If you have your yarn-overs and k2togs well in hand, that’ll make the class easy to jump into, but we’ll be covering those briefly at the beginning to make sure everyone is on the same page – I’ve designed the class to accommodate a range of skills. Looking forward, -Lisa

      Reading Turkish is not one of my skills (it sure does look beautiful in its written form 🙂
      But I think that “thanks” are in order. (If an online translator is to be trusted) you are kind to compliment me on the “nice hand” of the design. Thank you so much!
