Beginning Simple Shawl
Saturdays: March 10 and 24, 2018
12:00 – 3:00 pm at INUA Wool Shoppe
Cost: $40 plus materials
This 2-part class will teach the basics of interpreting and trusting a written pattern and shaping a knitted wearable. It is appropriate for any level knitter but is easy enough for someone hoping to advance beyond dishcloths. It is forgiving and, best of all, it results in a shawl that may become your best friend. It is meant to be worn; keep that in mind when making fiber choices.
Skill Level required: your favorite cast on, knit stitch.
Worsted weight yarn* 2 skeins (appx 500 yards)
Circular needle size 8** (minimum length 32" - You can start this on a 12" circular, but it will outgrow this.)
Several stitch markers, at least one that may be attached to the work and moved as needed.
Class 1 will get you started. This is a simple pattern, and 2 weeks are allowed for making the bulk of the shawl.
Class 2 involves finishing. I am always willing to meet you outside class if you stall out on something.
*Think washable! Sport weight yarn can be substituted, but needle size will need adjusting and it will take longer to finish your shawl. This is a good stash buster or leftover yarn burner project. Please keep in mind that yarn purchased at Inua should be used; the shop donates the space for our class.
**Needle size is somewhat flexible. This is an easy, forgiving piece, with No Guage Swatch! A smaller needle is going to make a denser, stiffer fabric; a larger needle will make a looser (but easier to snag) product.
