Have you wanted to knit a triangular shawl from charts but thought it was too hard? The Ashton Shawlette pattern was conceived as a way to teach knitters how to use and love lace charts. Ashton’s size can easily be customized up to a full-sized shawl. This class is taught by the designer.
Two 2-hour classes.
Reading lace charts
How to shape a triangular shawl
How to increase the size

The Structure of Lace
Approximately 400 yards of worsted weight yarn for the shawlette size. We suggest using yarns in natural fibers, such as Neighborhood Fiber Co Worsted or the Fiberists Audubon Worsted.
US #8 (5.00 mm) 32” circular needles
US #10(6.00 mm) , straight or circular
4 stitch markers

Blocking supplies (to be discussed in more detail in the class, can be purchased later)
Be sure to come to the shop early enough to have your supplies purchased and your yarn wound into balls before the start of class.
