Project Workshop: Octavia - The Knitting Hotel, Deveon
Octavia is a beautiful lace shawl and fingerless mittens set. The shawl has a beautiful lace panel running down the centre which adds shoulder shaping and helps the shawl sit nicely on the shoulders. Beads add a touch of glamour. The beaded lace pattern is repeated on the fingerless mittens.
In this class you will learn how to knit the lace pattern used in this design, how to add beads using the crochet hook method, how to read lace charts and how to shape the shawl. In the afternoon, you will get the chance to start your own shawl.
Materials will be provided for the morning but please bring yarn and needles for the shawls for the afternoon.
