Andrea Mowry’s stunning “Goldfinch” uses short rows to create cunning angled sections of stripes and mesh lace within a wearable asymmetrical triangle shape. Join Lynn and Lizzie for a workshop that will walk you through each section of this fun pattern, and add the infamous wrap-and-turn to your knitting repertoire.
