Shawl Shape Exploration - Andrea Rangel

  • Atrium Inn Seymour 2889 East Hastings Street Vancouver, BC, V5K 2A1 Canada (map)

Shawls area amazing canvases for exploring color and texture. In this workshop we’ll be practicing five basic shawl shapes: top-down triangle, pi, half pi, sideways crescent, and bottom-up crescent. Whether you want a little guidance before diving into your next project, or you’re interested in learning to design shawls for yourself, you’ll get all the instruction you need, and you’ll leave class with five tiny shawls to cement your learning.

About 100 yards smooth, light colored, worsted weight yarn 

Needles appropriate for worsted weight yarn (probably a US 6, 7, or 8/4-5 mm) (Straight or circular needles of any length are appropriate, though a long cord may get in the way and be irritating) 

A set of double pointed needles, a long circular for magic loop, or two circular needles in the same size as above for working a small circumference in the round 

Stitch markers
