Learn a Little Lace, Queen Vicki’s Wristlets – Cynthia Hyslop and Barb Barone

Elegant and refined, these beautiful wristlets are a great beginner lace project. They’re also perfect for almost any season and like their namesake, we think you could wear them just as easily to tea in May or over gloves in November.

This class is designed for those who are new to lace knitting and want to learn more about the fundamentals of lace while making something pretty! You will learn how to read and knit from a chart while  getting lots of practice making eyelets (yarn overs), slanted stitches and vertical columns in this pretty lace pattern. We will also encourage and show you how to add beads to your wristlets (should you desire), and how to do a picot edge at the top of your wristlet before binding off. Our class will end with seaming using mattress stitch and a demo of our favourite way to weave in ends, so they stay put and hidden on the inside.

Skills Required:

Participants should be able to proficiently cast on, knit and purl and bind off. 

Attendees to Bring:

  • Yarn: approximately 100 metres of a smooth fingering or sport weight yarn. We recommend Merino wool or a Merino/Silk/Cashmere blend.
  • Needles: 3.0 – 3.5 mm / US 2.5 – 4 U straight needles (we recommend a smooth wood or highly polished metal needle. Avoid plastic needles.)
  • A tapestry needle (for seaming).
