Shawl Shaping and Design 101
From cast on to bind off we will walk through the process of designing a top down triangular shawl with 2 lace patterns and an edging. We will learn how to transition from one lace pattern to another, how to fit new stitches into the pattern, how to write the pattern, and everything else needed to create original lace shawl designs. We will also study how increases and decreases impact shaping and bias, as well as the shaping principles of more than 30 different shawl shapes. Students will come away with a complete understanding of shawl shaping, an understanding of how increases and decreases impact fabric and the look of lace, and understand how to transition from one lace pattern to another smoothly.
Prerequisite: Students must have knit at least two lace shawls. Students must be able to work from charts.
