Mistakes happen. The beautiful thing is that they can be fixed! Don't let a little misstep derail that dazzling project; join knitting guru Laura Nelkin and leave those lace woes behind! During class, you'll learn to avoid lace knitting mistakes before they even happen, and what your stitches should look like, so you can identify mistakes sooner rather than later. Laura will cover common mistakes such as dropped stitches and teach you how to correct them, whether on the needles or after the fact. Plus, Laura teaches you to fix mistakes in increases, decreases and beyond and helps you understand which mistakes are worth fixing and which should just be left alone.
The first step to fixing mistakes is knowing how to read your knitting. Gain confidence identifying the orientation and type of stitches in your work and matching them up with the chart. Then, practice unknitting stitches to return to a problem area. In addition, Laura offers insights into when it's best to leave a mistake.
Discover simple ways to fix dropped stitches in your lace work before they unravel too far. You'll gain expert tips on rescuing stitches that have fallen off close to the needle -- or multiple rows down. Plus, learn how to identify dropped stitches and fix them when they're farther back in the work.
