Teacher: Carol Ullmann
Join Carol Ullman to craft an elegant, airy wrap perfect for Michigan’s always-iffy transition to spring. Astrid Ferrell’s “Mutti Shawl” combines plenty of relaxing garter stitch with simple shaping and a touch of elegant, straightforward lace, making it a perfect first shawl project. Work a one-color “Mutti,” mix things up by using two solid colors, or create a one-of-a-kind accessory by combining a solid color with your favorite skein of Stonehedge Fiber Mill’s Crazy.
