You’ve learned the basics of versa lace. Take the next step. How do you work double-increases, double-decreases, in the round, or center-out? How do you deal with purl stitches? Can you use beads? This class will give you the skills to make hats, mitts, tube socks, circular shawls, and more in versa lace.
Skill level is advanced.

No special needs for the room set up. A
whiteboard or flip chart is nice to have but not need to have. Room
set-up should be tables and chairs either facing forward or in a
U-shape. I have a projector if the facilities can accommodate it.
