In this class we will explore the techniques and patterns that pertain to Shetland Lace knitting. We will practice knitting the more complex lace patterns where motifs are worked on both the RS and WS of the work. We will also cover how to work a knitted on edging and how to form the center triangle of a traditional Shetland shawl. An overview of Shetland shawl constructions will be provided as well as some historical background.
Examples of Gudrun’s designs using Shetland Lace will be available to view in class.
