Mastering Lace Shawls

Knit This

Class rating

rated 5 stars


I love this class. Laura is such an amazing instructor who makes everything I thought was so difficult about lace knitting seem like its super easy. Everything is so clear and she guides you through everything so perfectly that you never feel lost. I am always able to keep up with the class despite having never knit lace before and I have enjoyed knitting every part of the shawls!! I will definitely take more of Laura's classes. I highly recommend this class for any knitter who wants to try ...

Absolutely wonderful

Laura is a gifted teacher. The class materials are comprehensive, she provides the most written material in any of the many many classes in my Craftsy library. She answers questions patiently (lace knitting takes practice!) and her teaching style is calm and thorough and comprehensive. This really is the best class I've taken with Craftsy, even though there are several that I like a lot.... I love her beaded knitting class as well, looking forward to more!

Extremely useful class

i really enjoyed knitting these shawls, they are quick and easy to make yet very well designed.
explanations were clear even for someone whose first language isn't english.
if i had to point out something that could be improved it would be
a) camera close ups: sometimes you get to watch the teacher in the face when you'd rather see how she finishes a stitch or a row, how she fixes mistakes etc
b) i would have added a section on how to weave in tails. i know most people ...
