Learn to Knit
a Triangular Lace Shawl
Using the elegant technique of yarn-over increases paired with decreases, learn to knit lace in a triangular shape. The class begins with how to make a garter stitch tab as the cast-on at the nape of the neck and covers the skills (including how to incorporate beads) needed to work down to the shaping of the bound-off edge. Practice chart reading by working on a stitch pattern which could be incorporated into the shaping of your triangular shawl.
Supplies: circular knitting needles (size 7 or 8), one ball of dk or worsted weight yarn (smooth, light colored), movable stitch markers.
PreRequisite: know how to cast on, knit, purl, bind off.
