Lace is one of the most beautiful ways to manipulate your knitting into something truly spectacular. In this class, we’ll work on designing our own lace patterns based on two different development techniques: encoded and improvisational. From there we’ll swatch, play, and perfect that lace ready to add to any project you want! We will additionally cast on and start a project using our lace designs.
