All you need to know to knit a straightforward, but extremely covetable triangular shawl! This workshop will take you step by step through the pattern, and includes the yarn - a 4ply blend of merino wool & silk. This gorgeous yarn is hand-dyed in Uruguay by a Fair Trade yarn company which supports a Women’s Cooperative, enabling women living in rural districts to work locally. Suitable for knitters who are confident with casting on & off, and knit and purl stitches.
