Wedge Shawl Design with J C Briar
Stunning shawls are often formed with lace 'wedge,' sections that gradually grow wider as the knitting progresses. Triangular shawls formed with 2 wedges are a familiar option. But shawls of 3 or more wedges are also possible, and often sit more securely on the wearer's shoulders.
Take this class to learn how to design a wedge shawl of your own. Pick from a selection of lace wedges, or learn to tweak your favorite lace pattern into a wedge shape. Choose your edgings and a spine to appear between the wedges. By the end of class, you'll be well on your way to a new, unique shawl.
Note: Must be comfortable reading charts and knitting lace.
This class begins on Thursday afternoon and concludes on Friday morning.
