Shawls/Shapes - Veera Välimäki

  • PNE Hastings Room 2 2901 East Hastings Street Vancouver, BC, V5K 5J1 Canada (map)

This Shawls/Shapes workshop begins with the basic shawl shapes like triangle and square and continues to all different new directions.

Top down, bottom up, center out, wherever you start and whatever direction you choose, you can always end up with a shawl! 

In this class you will learn the most common constructions of a shawl and how to take your shawl knitting to a whole new level.

We’ll discuss and learn:

  • Basic shawl shaping (triangle, crescent, square, circle, etc.)
  • How to add stitch pattern to a basic shape
  • How to take your shawl a step forward from the basics
  • Finishing touches

A worksheet on basic shawl construction methods will help you get the most
from this class.

Supplies to Bring:
Circular needle (approx. US7) and fingering to sport weight yarn in two colours.
