Fearless Lace Knitting: How to Fix Mistakes with Miriam Felton
Do you dread making a mistake in your lace knitting? Never fear! Even the most experienced knitters make mistakes, but the key to fearless lace knitting is knowing how to recognize and fix mistakes.

In this class we'll cover how to fix missing yarnovers, correct mis-leaning decreases, unknit one stitch at a time, dropping down individual repeats, and even how to rip whole rows without losing your stitches. We'll discuss when to use each, how to determine which mistake was made, and how to get back on track.

__Be able to knit and purl
__Have some experience knitting lace
__Be able to read a charted lace pattern
