Learn the basic skills to begin knitting beautiful lace items and start a beautiful scarf using traditional lace motifs. We will look at special cast on/cast offs, decrease stitches commonly used in lace, how to follow a chart and advice on blocking for the most beautiful finished project. 
Experience needed: knit, purl, cast on, cast off.  The ability to read a pattern would be helpful.
Materials to bring (or buy on the day): 4mm straight needles, 4ply yarn (something smooth and even coloured, preferably with wool content to assist blocking – you will need around 75g to complete a scarf), 1 stitch marker, darning needle, 1/2 metre of smooth yarn or cotton in contrasting colour.
