Japanese Lace Hat June 2018
Brand WoolWinders Yarn Shop
Description: Knitters who love beautiful stitch patterns are delighted with the Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible: 260 Exquisite Designs by Hitomi Shida, recently published in English. This class will give you an exclusive preview of one of the patterns: Hat with Crossed Stitches and Lace! Join the translator to knit the hat project from this book, and gain experience and insight into the complex charts and symbols. We’ll start the body of the hat with a provisional cast-on in the first class, practicing chart-reading and some of the more complex maneuvers, to be sure ou can work on the project later at home. In the second class, we’ll complete the hat with the ribbing added at the end.
