Teacher: Annie Lupton
Ready to dress things up a little? Annie Lupton is known for creating garments and accessories with bohemian flair for her BohoChic design line, and in this class she’ll walk you through everything you need to know to craft her "Collage Crescent" shawl. This is a brand new design scheduled for release on August 20. You’ll learn the basics of garter-tab shawl construction, as well as how to embroider your knitwear and how to crochet a useful and versatile border, leaving class with a nicely expanded crafting repertoire and an elegant new accessory.
Pre-requisites: Participants should be familiar with the following: casting-on, knitting, purling, basic increases and decreases, picking up stitches, and binding off.
