Lace has a special appeal, a certain charm that just compels us to become “that” kind of knitter. A lace knitter. It’s easy to be intimidated. From leaf and flowers, to nupps and motifs, to giant charts and all-over patterns, there’s a distinct sense of complexity that makes us hesitate. We imagine that learning to knit lace is a hard thing.

In reality, the only skill necessary to become a lace knitter is concentration. That, and perhaps a willingness to give the old lace chart a solid try. Everything else is already in your repertoire! Knits, purls, increases, and decreases.

In this course, Tabetha Hedrick brings you right to the basics of how to knit lace so that it’s not overwhelming. In fact lace is really approachable and when we’re done, you’re going to have a whole new world of light, beautiful fabrics to explore.

Remember to Download the Become a Lace Knitter Workbook here so you can follow along and practice to become a lace knitter.

Note: This course is also part of the lesson material in the SOS Knitting Study Group-guide – If you would love to design your own shawl but want to learn to knit lace or brush up and improve your lace mastery first, we hope you’ll join us there.
