Shetland Lace: A Londoner's Approach with Gwen Bortner
Shetland lace knitting is a beloved tradition with a unique construction method. In 1975 Gladys Amedro, originally of London, moved to the island of Yell in Shetland and began designing Shetland lace using a combination of traditional and non-traditional methods. In this class we will knit a swatch using Mrs. Amedro's method of working from the edge to the center.
Lace-weight merino yarn will be supplied by the teacher.
Note: Students must be able to work standard increases and decreases, read a basic chart, and have experience with lace-weight yarn.
__3.5mm/US4 needles, both circular and double-pointed, sharp-tipped needles are essential to working with lace-weight yarn
__Knitting Basics: Sharp scissors, Notebook, Pen or pencil with eraser, Stitch markers, Tapestry needles (large and small), Tape measure, Small calculator, Needles and crochet hooks of various sizes
