Do you dread making a mistake in your lace knitting? Never fear! Even the best lace knitters make mistakes, but the key to fearless lace knitting is knowing how to recognize and fix mistakes. In this class we’ll cover how to fix missing yarnovers, how to correct mis-leaning decreases, how to unknit one stitch at a time, how to rip whole rows without losing your stitches, and dropping down individual repeats to correct mistakes. For each of the techniques, we’ll discuss when to use them and how to determine which mistake has been made.
