Imagine starting a lace shawl with just a few stitches, and “growing” in pattern until your shawl is big enough, with no worries about matching gauge or loosely casting on oodles of stitches. Picture choosing from a variety of shapes – triangles, squares, circles, semi-circles, and more – each composed of a series of lace “wedges,” sections that gradually grow wider as the knitting progresses. Take this class to learn how to grow a shawl of your own design. Pick from a selection of lace wedges, and see what shapes you can create by knitting your shawl from the top down or the center out. Learn how to estimate how much yarn you’ll need, or – if your yarn supply is limited – how large a shawl you can create from the yarn you have. By the end of class, you’ll be well on your way to a new, unique shawl.
