Lace & Openwork Knitting Workshop FAQ

My yarn overs are too tight or too loose. How do I make them even?Expand

If you tend to be a loose knitter, then you might want to try going down a needle size to see if you can get gauge with the lace pattern as listed in the pattern. If you tend to knit tightly, then try going up a needle size.

If this doesn't seem to work, then it might have something to do with the way you tension your yarn. I tend to wrap the yarn once around my little finger then up over my pointer finger and to the needle. There are so many ways to hold your yarn, and there isn't a right or wrong way to do it -- just the way that's easiest for you.

How does the sleeve cast-on work for the Cagney Tee?Expand

Cast on for the first sleeve, work across in the lace pattern #3 (row 1), then cast on at the other end and purl across (row 2). On the next row (3), you just work across the whole row in lace pattern #3 row 3 and continue with the pattern as you go. Yes, there is a one-row difference, but it's not going to show, as the first row gets sewn into the seam.

What are the "back of hand" stitches?Expand

The "back of hand" stitches are those which will be worn across the back of the hand when the mitts are finished; in other words, the lace half of the knitting.

Do I need to block my garment if it's made in acrylic yarn?Expand

I would still block your garment even in acrylic yarn. Some acrylics take better to blocking than others, but I'd say there's always a better result after blocking.

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.
