Shawls are one of the most popular projects in the knitting world right now. They’re the perfect way to explore new techniques or use just a few skeins of precious yarn for something lovely.

In this class, we’ll look at a how to create a few different shawl shapes, and then discuss adding stitch patterns or playing with unconventional shaping.


Though we will mostly be swatching, you can bring:

  • Between 500-900 yards of fingering weight yarn to start your chosen shawl
  • A size 5 or 6 32” or longer circular needle

For swatching, please bring:

  • 200 yards of dk or worsted weight yarn
  • appropriate needles
  • stitch markers
