Waste Not Shawls

Summertime is coming! Time for shawls! If you stash or spin, then sometimes what you have is all there is. We will look at how to knit triangular shawls without running out of yarn. We ll consider the pros and cons of top-down, bottom-up, and side-to-side construction and simple variants that stay put on your shoulders. We will look at how to knit until you run out of yarn or swatch so that you know your limits. Students will learn: trivia cast-on and garter tab beginning, where to increase to produce various shapes, and how to use a scale for yarn management and project planning. There will be shawls to try on so you can decide what you like best.
