Have you ever dreamed of designing and knitting your own custom crescent shawl? With this all day course, you can do exactly that!
In DIY Crescent Shawl you will learn the basics of planning and creating a beautiful shawl using lace patterns and shaping.
We’ll discuss the various shapes and construction of shawls, and discover what yarns, patterns, and techniques work best for this type of shaping. We’ll discuss lace borders, pattern repeats, and calculate the math for the border and short row shaping for a bottom-up shawl.
Through discussion, creative exploration, and intervals of knitting, you will create swatches and have your new shawl designed by the end of class. You’ll leave with all the skills and information you’ll need to make your own one-of-a-kind piece in any weight yarn you choose.
