Winter Honey Shawl Workshop with Andrea Mowry
Saturday, February 4, 1-5pm • $105
THIS CLASS IS FULL AND WE ARE TAKING NAMES FOR A WAITING LIST
This workshop will focus on the skills needed to make the beautifully textured Winter Honey Shawl. This triangle shaped shawl is a delight to knit, utilizing the bouncy honeycomb cable in two different sizes, and even better to wear! In class we will learn how to perform the garter tab cast on, discuss shawl shaping, practice working a cable with and without a cable needle, and try out Andrea's favorite shawl bind off!
Prerequisites: This class is best suited for intermediate knitters. Students who are comfortable with casting on and off, knitting, purling and increasing should do just fine!
Materials: At least one skein of worsted weight yarn. (Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in the color of your choice is recommended.) If you would like to begin working on your shawl, the Shawlette takes 5 skeins, and the larger shawl takes 8. Students are also welcome to work from a swatch.
