Folding and assembly of the strip, with a revision of the necessary finishing techniques (Mattress stitch and setting stitches to rows). Designing with triangular units and thinking in three dimensions. Variations of patterns, stripes and texture. Creating hexagons and planning patchwork style projects.

We'll take a look at single and double yarn-ove lace holes and a series of different methods of making larger holes and how they can be employed to give a varity of effects. We'll look at using waste yarn to create openings, with a crochet chain to hold the edges and the versatility of the marvellous scallop hole, which may be used for an all over fabric, for detailing and as a method for increasing and decreasing. How to handle multiple yarn overs and create new stitches. Even if you don't currently plan to make holes on your knitting, there are many useful mainstream spinoffs for these techniques.
