Shawls on the Side

Karen Whooley

Thursday PM

In this class Karen will share with you her techniques on making a side-to-side crescent-shaped shawl. These shawls are made all in one piece with the main body and edging. You will learn how to do the math as well as how to select the right stitches for the main body and edging so that the pattern works out. When you are done, you will have a shawl that is made all in one piece with just a couple of ends to
weave in.

Skill level: Advanced beginner at the minimum. Must know the 6 basic stitches (chain, slip, single, double, half double and triple) as well as understand the concept of increasing and decreasing.

Material Fee: $0

KWhooley - Shawls On The Side

Student Supplies: 300 yards of Lace, Fingering, Sport or DK weight yarn. Same hook size that was used in the homework swatch (and a few other sizes just in case), stitch markers, scissors, pen or pencil, tape measure or other device to measure gauge. Also bring stitch dictionaries with desired stitches and edgings. Make sure the edgings are worked on the short side, not the long side.

Homework: Make a 6-inch double crochet swatch using your shawl yarn.
