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 we'll also look at how Orenburg shawls are constructed.
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.
