    Lace Shawl Confidence: Knitting the Arboe Shawl

    Lace Shawl Confidence:  Knitting the Arboe Shawl

    Saturday mornings, July 13 & 27, from 10:00 am-12:30 pm

    2 classes; each class is 2.5 hours

    Skills Learned:
    Learn to knit a crescent shawl from Erin Clayton herself, the designer of Philomena, the mystery knit-along for this year's Maine Yarn Cruise. In this workshop you will knit her Arboe Shawl, which includes some classic and not-so-classic techniques for lace shawls, such as a garter-tab cast on and three uses of eyelets for different effects. Erin will show knitters how to read the emerging shawl, troubleshoot and correct any mistakes. This workshop is a good choice for a first-time lace shawl knitter and a skill-builder for an intermediate knitter. You will have homework between classes.

    be competent to independently cast-on, knit, purl and bind off

    Pattern, project bag and 5 hours of instruction

    Additional Info:
    Bring two 100g skeins of fingering-weight yarn in a tonal or solid color, US size 6 (4.0 mm) 24" circular needle, and your usual knitting notions (not included, but available for purchase).
