MASTERING LACE SWEATERS KNITTING COURSE
Mastering Lace Sweaters Workshop
Date: 21st August 2018, 1.30pm to 4.30pm
Spend the afternoon with Georgie Nicolson of Tikki Knits learning her favourite tips and tricks for seamless circular sweater knitting. The class will tackle basic lace and include chart reading, and Georgie's fabulous underarm trick.
Using the well-loved Granny’s Favourite pattern, this class will have you fearlessly tackling lace patterns as you learn skills for conquering lace and perfecting your sweater finishing. This class explores the elements of seamless, circular knitting. Participants will knit a baby sized version of Granny’s Favourite and will learn all the tools necessary for successfully conquering lace; reading your knitting, how to use charts to your advantage, the saving grace of lifelines and how to use stitch markers to ensure you keep your place! With lace conquered we’ll look at a number of other sweater finishing techniques that you can use on other projects to bring your sweater knitting to the next level. Create button-bands that sit neatly, underarms that don’t need darning and sleeves that please even the fussiest wearer. Learn how blocking finishes off your garment like nothing else can.
Prerequisites: Ability to cast on, knit, purl and work basic increasing and decreasing stitches.
