Waste Not: Shawls class
Skill level is intermediate.
Prerequisite: Students should know how to knit, purl, increase, and decrease.
Maximum 20 students.
½ day workshop
Students receive a handout in booklet form.
No materials fee.
class yarn (smooth, non-splitting, light or bright or medium color) for swatching
needles to work that yarn (short dpns very helpful but not required)
waste yarn for vertical lifelines & provisional cast-on
I bring 6 different swatches to show variations on garter tab cast-on as well as variations on edgings. I also bring 3 different "notch" shawls as well as a variety of triangular and related shawl shapes.
No special needs for the room set up. A whiteboard or flip chart is nice to have but not need to have. I have a projector if the facilities can accommodate it. Access to a full-length mirror 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.
