A lace scarf is a wardrobe classic, an easy way to add style to your closet. Knitting one teaches you a lot of skills, especially when it's the sampler style in the pattern My Shetland Home. The scarf has five different types of traditional Shetland Lace, are all knit on a garter stitch base. You'll find the skills you gain in this class are easily transferable to other future projects. 

In this class, you'll learn how to read a lace pattern, mark the pattern for ease of use, how to read a flat lace pattern (right side vs. wrong side), fix mistakes, use a lifeline and block your finished project. 

To succeed in this class you should be comfortable knitting, purling, and using basic increases and decreases.
