xx-Sold Out-xx K07 Mitered Entrelac Shawl with Laura Barker

Thursday, April 30 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Fairgrounds – Bingo Hall

Mitered entrelac is an exciting new technique that takes two or more tiers of entrelac around corners as seen in Laura’s book, “Mitered Entrelac, Knitting Entrelac Around the Corner.” The precise matching at the corners is reminiscent of mitered frames. Learn to turn a corner, begin a triangle shawl, learn the “double half stitch pickup” method of picking up stitches for tiny and gap-free transitions between blocks, and everything else you need to finish this reversible and versatile accessory. Skill level: Intermediate. Maximum number of students: 15. Students should bring: Three colors of worsted weight yarn (15 yards per color for class, 100 grams of each for a complete shawl); and 40-48” US #8 (5mm) circular needle. Homework: None.

Class Code: K07. Class Fee: $55. Materials Fee: None.
