Get the Skinny on Lace with Denise Bell
While it's true that any type of yarn can be used to make lace and that there are many wonderful works made from heavier yarns, there is something special about a lace shawl made from true lace weight yarn. There is no need to be lace-phobic!
If you've admired light-weight shawls that lift with a gentle breeze and weigh next to nothing but felt intimidated by wispy yarn, it's time to get your skinny on. Learn the basics of triangle shawl knitting from a self-acknowledged lace junkie and the confidence to complete it.
3.5mm/US4 or 3.75mm/US5 circular needle with sharp tips; four stitch markers; one skein of at least 800 yards of a SOLID-colored, lace-weight, merino or wool yarn.
Note: Since this is a beginning lace class fibers such as silk, alpaca, mohair or bamboo are not recommended.
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
