We've all seen gorgeous, hand-knit lace and openwork patterns in magazines, in clothing shops, or even being worn by someone else. If you've ever thought, "I wish I could do that, but it looks too hard," then look no further. You can learn to knit beautiful lace patterns with expert instructor and designer Jill Wright there to guide you. In this class you'll learn:
  • Which yarns and needles are best suited for learning to knit lace
  • How to knit simple and more involved increases and decreases
  • How to make every stitch stand out beautifully with three blocking techniques
  • How to knit a pretty pair of mitts with an easy lace panel
  • How to knit lace in the round with a cozy cowl pattern
  • How to knit three delicate, intermediate-level lace patterns with a gorgeous T-top
  • Multiple cast-on and bind-off methods including cable cast-on, alternate cable cast-on, knit cast-on, backward loop cast-on, lace cast-on, stretchy bind-off and lace bind off
When you complete this class, you'll have a solid working knowledge of knitting lace that will give you the confidence to tackle just about any intermediate-level lace pattern you may find.

I have been hesitant about trying openwork, but this class has helped a lot. Plus, I love how the class is always there to review.

Awesome class, so far I understand the instructions, and that may be a miracle because I have been scared of lace for a long time. This class has been a very good purchase for me. I am hoping to slowly but surely become a confident lace knitter.

I found this online class very helpful and a great tool to have in my library. I have been a knitter for many years and never have tackled lace. Thank you.

Love the class. Great those chapters are short; however, music is distracting. Jill explains well and uses comprehensible instructions. Good class. I enjoy her step by step instructions. Now, how about some advanced lace classes. Thank you, Annie!

Jill Wright is awesome. I love this video class. I never thought I could knit lace and I am loving it. I have made several Mitts and Cowl and now I'm ready to start on the Tee. So excited that I finally have someone to help me along the way. Thank you Jill.
