Shetland Sky and Sea with Denise Bell
The themes of sky and sea are frequently represented in Shetland designs. Would you expect anything less from the beautiful but hard-to-reach islands located where the Atlantic Ocean meets the North Sea?

In this fine-lace class, we'll look at 3 traditional Shetland stitches: the Bird's Eye, the Cockleshell, and the Shetland Heart. They all involve patterning on every row and require a bit of concentration, but are well worth the effort!

Note: Students must be able to work standard increases and decreases, be proficient at chart reading, and have experience with lace-weight yarn.

_3.5mm/US4 or 3.75mm/US5 circular needle with sharp points
Note: A butterfly of lace-weight yarn for swatching will be supplied.
_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
