Shetland Lace: A Londoner's Approach with Denise Bell
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.
