Garter Tab Beginning mini class

This class is on the schedule at SAFF 2018. Learn more and register here.

Start your top down shawls at the back of the neck without a true cast-on! The garter tab beginning incorporates the garter edging of your shawl while giving you a spot to start the double increases.

Skill level is intermediate.
Knowledge of provisional cast-on is advantageous but not required.

Maximum 20 students.

mini workshop

Students receive a handout in booklet form.

No materials fee.

No homework.

class yarn (smooth, non-splitting, light or bright or medium color)
needles to work that yarn (non-slippery dpns are helpful)
waste yarn for vertical lifelines & provisional cast-on
split-ring stitch markers or coil-less safety pins optional but helpful

I bring with me a set of six swatches showing variations on how to work the garter tab.

No special needs for the room set up. A whiteboard or flip chart is nice to have but not need to have. Room set-up should be tables and chairs either facing forward or in a U-shape.

This is a core technique from “Waste Not: Shawls.”
This class has been taught at
Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair 2014, Fletcher NC;
Middle Tennessee Fiber Festival 2015, Dickson TN.
