Sideways Lace Shawls with Sivia Harding
Sideways crescent-shaped shawls are great fun to knit and provide an easy introduction to designing. You will choose between a few options to begin your crescent shape, then we choose a knitted-lace edging to showcase in your shawlette. We will discuss lace stitches particular to edgings and how they may be portrayed in charts. We also discuss placements of beads within your lace design.
Students receive the benefit of Sivia's years of experience in designing exceptional beaded lace.
