NEW Workshop — Wave on Wave Shawl

NEW A Special One-Day Workshop led by FIONA MORRIS

Fiona Morris is a knitting and crochet tutor with many years’ experience. Following her highly successful Estonian Lace workshop here last year, she is returning to tutor this one-day workshop, to make one of her latest designs - this eye-catching ‘wave on wave’ triangular shawl.

The shawl is knitted in garter stitch and can be made with a wide variety of yarns - combining solid colours with long change coloured yarns, and in different weights. (Our new Emozione yarn cake by Mondial would work a treat).

The colour change is achieved through short row shaping rather than Intarsia, so only one yarn is worked at a time.

Suitable for all but beginner knitters.
