Beginning Simple Shawl- 10/22, 11/05, & 11/19


Beginning Simple Shawl

Saturdays: October 22, November 5 and 19, 2016

12:00 – 3:00 pm at INUA Wool Shoppe

Cost: $40 plus materials

Instructor: CJ

 

 

 

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. 

 

Supplies:

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.
