Thinking of diving into lace? Here is a great class for you to get your feet wet. Falling Water is a beautiful lace pattern that looks cabled but isn’t! With just an 8-row repeat, it is easy to learn while still keeping you interested. In this class, you will learn to read and work a lace chart, incorporating a variety increases and decreases. You will also gain the invaluable skills of inserting a lifeline and ripping back in case of mistakes. You can make it scarf width, or add more repeats for a wider wrap. For the ultimate in soft, there’s nothing like cashmere. Gabriella’s sample is in Jade Sapphire 4-ply, and our newest Cardiff DK weight chainette would be a dream. Baah Aspen and Blue Sky Alpaca Silk will give more drape; SweetGeorgia Trinity Worsted or Lang Yak will provide more warmth.
Advance preparation may be required depending on the class topic. Details will be provided one week in advance or upon sign-up. Each weekly class session includes two hours of hands-on instruction, and extra help outside of class if needed and our time allows (it almost always does!). Yarn for classes must come from Compatto Yarn Salon, and we are always happy to help you choose the best yarn for your class or project. If you have questions about this or any other class, please give us a call at 310-453-2130.
