This session is an introduction to knitting a basic, classic triangle shawl. We will learn how the shawl is constructed and the specific increasing techniques needed. Students will leave with the confidence and know-how to complete this shawl pattern, as well as insight into triangle shawl design -- as a bonus, Renate will bring handouts that demystify the many triangle shawls of today!


Yarn:  Cascade 220 Sport weight -- 4 hanks.

Needles:  US7 (4.5mm) 32" or more.  

Stitch markers

Tapestry needle

This is a top-down knit shawl that requires "homework" before you come to class! The first 45% of the shawl is knitted in Garter Stitch, and should be done before Class. This is done in fingering-weight yarn so we can weigh remaining cake (should be approximately 55 grams). This shawl does NOT have a spine, and increases are on the ends.

Class cost is $20 plus ABOUT $3.50 for pattern.

Needle size is anywhere from US5-7 (3.75 - 4.5) 40", 60 6mm seed beads and Size 10 steel crochet hook for beading. One marker for center, and tapestry needle for weaving in ends.
