Learn Orenburg Lace Knitting with Anniken Allis , Spin A Yarn, Wednesday, 29. May 2019

Join us in our award-winning yarn shop in Bovey Tracey for a workshop from internationally acclaimed designer Anniken Allis.
Orenburg lace shawls are traditionally knitted from very fine yarn hand-spun on spindles from goats down. In this class we'll look at a brief history of Orenburg lace shawls and you'll practice working different traditional Orenburg lace stitches, reading lace charts and you'll knit a mini version of a traditional Orenburg shawl.
This class is suitable for confident knitters. Experience in lace knitting is not essential as there will be a choice of lace patterns to suit various experience levels.
All materials will be supplied. You will be given an Orenburg inspired shawl pattern to take home.
Skills needed: Knit, purl, cast on and cast off.
Please bring your own lunch. There are also many local places to buy lunch nearby.
Tea-time treats and refreshments will also be served.
Either book here through Eventbrite, call 01626 836203 or pop into the shop in person.
Workshop attendees receive a discount voucher on the day, valid for one month from the date of the workshop on yarn and accessories.
