Orenburg Lace Portuguese Style with Andrea Wong
Orenburg Lace originated in Russia, and it is famous for its beauty and simplicity. The design uses Garter Stitch decorated with yarn overs showing patterns like flowers, fruits, paws, etc. Since Garter Stitch is very simple and efficient in Portuguese knitting, we are going to combine them both! This class will include Portuguese knit, purl and yarn over, comments about Orenburg lace and its designs, and a hands on project.
