New Year’s Day Knitalong

January 1 @ 11:00 am - 8:00 pm
Event Category:

It’s time for 2020 and time for a fresh start to the new year! The fibre space yarnistas are making plans for what projects and skills they want to tackle in the new year. To kick off a year of making and learning, we are hosting a knitalong on New Year’s Day. Gather up a few supplies and come in to make this snuggly shawl. We will show you how to get started and work eyelet increases, if they are new to you.

From the designer:

The Lindis Shawl is knitted top down. The body is knitted in stockinette stitch with a jagged line of eyelets. A small eyelet section separates the stockinette body from the garter border. This insert increases the stitchcount significantly, ensuring a large wingspan and good drape.
Due to the gauge it is a quick and easy knit that will not pose difficulties even for beginners. It is the ideal shawl to showcase a special yarn; it is worked best in a solid yarn (speckled or variagated yarns are not advised as this will obscure the eyelet line of the design).

Skills needed:

ability to knit and purl and some experience reading a pattern.

Gauge: 13.5 stitches/25 rows per 10×10 cm / 4×4 inches in stockinette stitch, after washing and blocking with relaxed fabric

Materials:

  • 438 yards of DK weight yarn. The pattern is designed in two hanks of Harrisville Nightshades, 100 % wool; 228 m/250 yards per 100 gram.
    • Other options at fibre space: Neighborhood Fiber Co Studio DK, Hazel Knits Lively DK
  • US# 6 (4.0 mm) circular needle 32” or longer
  • stitch markers
  • tapestry needle for weaving in ends
  • pins for blocking
