This class is designed to provide knitters with an extensive overview of Orenburg-style lace knitting. Students will be introduced to the elements of lace-knitting design: the 10 basic elements that provide the very foundation of Orenburg lace knitting (patterns such as mouse print, cat’s paw, honeycomb, and more) will serve as your guide. A unique cast-on, distinctive shaping using a modified short-row method, and a grafting technique that “seams” almost magical in its simplicity and versatility will provide the necessary tools to achieving lace-knitting bliss. And, as always, a class with Galina is an unforgettable cultural experience!
Students should bring their favorite needles (any style sizes 0-3), and note-taking materials including pencils.
