Welcome to the second destination of Space Missions, our new online learning series. Throughout the summer and into the fall, we will post a class project, materials list to purchase, followed by free video content on IGTV and YouTube. The classes are free to participate in. We just ask that if you need supplies, you choose to support our shop during this difficult time by purchasing those supplies from us. Our second mission – LACE! Join Beth in learning to use increases and decreases to create beautiful lace patterns used in the yoke of this delicate summer top.
Learn tips and tricks to successfully read lace charts and use increases and decreases to create open, lacy patterns in your knitting. Beth will be knitting the Cascadas Tee by Susanna IC. This airy summer top features a simple lace yoke.
