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.
All of the chat and progress will be shared over at the Become a Lace Knitter course forum, with social media posts shared using the tags: #sosknitting and #schoolofsweetgeorgia.

Do you you love knitting socks and are ready to adjust the fit and feel of your finished project? Perhaps you’re ready to up your game a bit in your next handknit pair? Tabetha will knock your socks off at our new SOS course for knitters Learn to Knit Heel & Toe Variations for Top Down Socks taught by Tabetha Hedrick @tabismiles!
In this workshop you’ll learn how to knit four heel flap variations and four toe variations, going over the construction techniques for each one. You will find thorough instructions on how to incorporate the heel into your own sock stitch count in the course workbook, and it’ll have a bit of math (very little) so you can plug in your own stitch counts for a perfectly custom fit.
