Knitting and Designing with Favorite Shawl Shapes
Michele Lee Bernstein
Shawls and shawlettes are a great way to show off one or two skeins of very special yarn. How are these shapes constructed? We’ll knit through mini versions of my favorite shapes: Top down triangle, asymmetric triangle, top down elongated crescent, and sideways crescent. Learn these shapes and make up your own shawl!
Skill level: Intermediate.
Material Fee: $2 for handout
50g/150 yards smooth, light colored sport or DK weight yarn, and straight or 24” circular needles in the appropriate size for your yarn. (It will be easier to learn with a thicker yarn and a slightly longer needle tip.)
