Mystified by all the little symbols and boxes crowding that pattern page? Get started on colourwork, lace, and cables with confidence. In this workshop, we’ll cover common standard chart notation for lace and cables, work through how to knit from a chart in the round and flat, and get started on a swatch. Charts from free patterns will be provided as examples.

Prerequisites:
you should be able to confidently cast on, cast off, knit and purl, and work basic increases (yo - yarn over) and decreases (k2tog, ssk).
Homework: Start a swatch: knit approximately 2” in rib or garter, then 1” in stockinette. Note that this is not a colourwork technique class: we will knit our swatch in one colour from lace and/or cable charts. If you have a particular chart you have questions about, send it to [email protected] with the subject line “Chart class” and Naomi will look over it to prepare for the class.
Materials: Any yarn of your choice and needles for it.
