Want to add some pizzazz to your lace as you finish it? In this class, students will learn to bind off with flair! We’ll discuss choosing the right bind off for your finished lace and work several different ones in class. We will discuss how to get a nice stretchy edge as well as how to work three decorative bind offs. After this class a regular old bind off on your shawls just won’t do!

Skills Required:

  • Basic knitting skills: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increasing/decreasing
  • Basic skill with chain and single crochet
  • Students must be able to read and follow a pattern

Bring to Class:

  • 40–50 yards of smooth, light-colored worsted weight yarn
  • US 6/4mm or 7/4.5mm knitting needles (straights or circulars are ok; gauge is not critical for swatches)
