Lace Stitches from Japan with Gayle Roehm
Japanese designers create beautiful lace patterns, many of which are adapted from traditional European styles. In this class, we'll swatch a couple of lace stitch patterns that I've selected from Japanese designs. We'll look at what might be considered typically 'Japanese' about a lace stitch. We’ll also cover some tips on interpreting charted lace patterns, as well as variations (and pitfalls) you might encounter.

Small amounts of yarn for swatching (fingering to sport weight, rather than fine lace weight), and needles a size or two larger than you would normally use with the yarn (US 3 to 7), at least one set of needles should be DPNs.
