Loving Your Lace Edgings with J C Briar
Adding a lace edging is a sweet way of topping off shawls, scarves, socks or any other kind of project! In this class, you will learn where to find edging patterns, and how you can customize them.
You will pick up tips for working tricky stitches, such as yarn overs at the beginning of a row, and for blocking. We will go over multiple options for attaching edgings, and you will have the chance to practice on a sample piece.
Note: Experience knitting lace is required; experience reading charts helpful but not required
