Event description

Description

Join us in our award-winning yarn shop in Bovey Tracey for a workshop from inspiring expert teacher and designer Alison Crowther-Smith.

This elegant crescent-shaped shawl can be knitted in double knitting yarn or Rowan Kidsilk Haze. The main shawl is reasonably simple, whilst the border, which is simple lace, is knitted on at the end, rather than casting off.

This workshop will cover the construction of the shawl, the textured sections, beading, shaping, use of stitch markers, and the knitted on border – a valuable skill to learn as knitted-on borders are increasingly popular in shawl patterns. For these reasons, you need to be a reasonably experienced knitter rather than a complete beginner.

The workshop will begin with a swatch-session enabling you to practice all the main elements of the project after which you will cast on your own shawl.

For the DK version, you will need:

Yarn:

Yarn A – 3 x 50g balls of Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK sh no 672, Dawn (or your choice)

Yarn B – 2 x 50g balls of Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK sh no 670, Snowdrop (or your choice)


Needles: 4mm circular needle, 80cm long or longer


Other: Approx 600 beads, size 6, in the shade of your choice. 2 stitch markers

For the Kidsilk Haze Shawl you will need:

Yarn:

Yarn A – 2 x 25g balls of Rowan Kidsilk Haze sh no 589, Majestic (or your choice)

Yarn B – 2 x 25g balls of Rowan Kidsilk Haze sh no 590, Pearl (or your choice)

Needles: 4mm needle, 80cm long or longer


Other: Approx 400 beads, size 6, in the shade of your choice. 2 stitch markers


Needles not required on the day, but needed to complete the pattern at home (these can be ordered on the day if you wish): 4.5mm circular needle, 80cm long or longer, plus 5mm circular needle for the cast off.
