Here it is just a week before I fly out to Portland, Oregon to teach five crochet classes at the Chain Link conference. I have a quick update on my preparations for my class on star stitch lace, The Starwirbel Way!
New Features Added to the 2018 Class
How to use my Star Stitch Foundation
How I created a “Flatwirbel”
I converted a Starwirbel (tube in spiraling rounds) into a flat rectangular wrap.How to get the same kind of lace as a flat rectangle? People have requested this for years and I’ve swatched it several times. I love this one! (Pictured above, in progress.) It retains for me the experience and special effects of making it.
More importantly in the long run, it means we can now use Starwirbel fabric to make anything.
Starwirbel Now has a Stitch Diagram
For those of us who like to use stitch diagrams, we’ll have time in class to go over Starwirbel’s. Star stitch diagrams can be a bit quirky to understand at first.
