  • This stunning accessory includes simple lace and cables. Written instructions are included, or you can try reading the chart. It's easier than you might think!

"While I already learned circular knitting on DPN's, magic loop, and using 2 circs, this class greatly enhanced my technique. Plus I really wanted the patterns to go with the class. I enjoyed Stefanie's teaching methods and found she explained each step clearly. If you need to see a step multiple times, hit the 30-second repeat button. No need to have a teacher repeat herself 5 times. Great class, great teacher, great techniques, and great patterns to experiment with."
