We're going online with our workshops! You can take this class from the comfort of your home, using a free videoconferencing software called Zoom. Please read the Helpful Tips section carefully before registering for this class.

What it's All About

Knitting and mistakes go hand in hand. All knitters, even the most advanced ones make mistakes. You already know how to make simple fixes like dealing with a dropped stitch or twisted stitches. Now it’s time to kick it up a notch and learn some advanced skills to fix your mistakes. We’ll concentrate on lace and cables, ripping out small sections and recreating them row by row instead of ripping out several rows or the entire project.

Pre-Work Required

A PDF with a small amount of pre-work will be sent to you upon registration in this class. Please make sure that you have done the pre-work completed before the first session.

Please Bring

  • two homework swatches
  • smooth yarn in a light colour, preferably with some wool content; worsted weight for cable swatch; fingering to worsted weight for lace swatch
  • appropriately sized knitting needles
  • double-pointed needles approximately 2 sizes smaller (wood or bamboo, if possible)
  • cable needle
  • crochet hook (similar size to knitting needles)
  • ONE of the following: small blocking square, or foam mat, or small throw pillow, or piece of corrugated cardboard about 12” square
  • T-pins or straight pins with a large, glass bead head
  • reading glasses, if you need them!
  • point protectors or two rubber bands
  • knitter’s tool kit

Skill Level

You’re comfortable with the basics and know how to knit simple lace and cables, read a chart, and follow simple pattern instructions.
