Arts Center to offer Lace Shawl Knitting Class

HANCOCK -- Summer is the perfect time to knit up a lace shawl. They’re lightweight and portable, and many shawl patterns can be written on a small piece of paper or easily memorized! Lace Shawl Knitting Class with instructor Kari Jaun will focus on shawl construction, covering design methods that will lead to making the perfect shawlette or an extravagant wrap.

Students will learn about reading charts, lace knitting, various shaping techniques, embellishments, and blocking. The class will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on four Tuesdays -- April 19 and 26 and May 3 and 10 -- at the Copper Country Community Arts Center. The deadline to register is Tuesday, April 12.

Class fee: $80 plus materials list.

The Copper Country Community Arts Center is located at 126 Quincy Street in Hancock. Call 482-2333 for more information.
