*Please review our class policies before registering*

We'll use Kate Davies' engaging and deceptively simple Footfall Shawl pattern to learn the foundational skills of lace knitting and top down triangular shawl shaping.  The class is a hands-on learning experience with lots of time for knitting together. You'll leave us with your lace shawl project well on the way.

Pre-requisites: This class is designed for adventurous beginners wanting to learn something new, or more advanced knitters who have never tried lace patterns before. Participants must be comfortable with casting-on, knitting, purling, and binding-off.

Materials: Not included. Bring or Buy

  • Footfall Shawl Pattern
  • 355 yards of Aran or Heavy Worsted weight yarn (this is usually 2-3 skeins)
  • One, 6mm circular needle at least 24" in length (32" is ideal). We recommend ChiaoGoo Red Lace. The sharp tips are very helpful.
  • Two different styles or colours of stitch markers.
  • Tapestry needle
