Openwork Skill Developer Class

Description

The Openwork Skill Developer Class gives you a complete introduction to the openwork technique, taking your skill level through from beginner to intermediate while making two beautiful shawls. If you are a complete beginner to knitting add the optional Beginners Yarn Pack to your order below. This will provide the extra yarn required for practising your basic techniques. Use our free Video Tutorials section for step-by-step guidance on cast-on methods, and how to knit, purl, and cast off. When you are comfortable with these basic techniques you will be ready to start your Sulaire Shawl, which will introduce you to openwork. By the time you have completed the Sulaire you will be ready to move on to the more complex motifs and edging of the Cluaran, and you will be confident in your openwork ability. This class does not include needles, you will require 1 pair of 40cm-long 4mm needles and 1 pair of 40cm-long 3.25mm needles
