(131) Think Small - Shawls That Is!
Shawls can come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. In this class we’ll be looking at – and knitting – small shawls in a variety of shapes. Depending on your preferences, the resulting shawls can be made for the fun and educational aspects making them; to use with dolls and stuffed creatures; as doilies, dresser scarves, or other table dressing; as dishcloths or washcloths; as real scarves; or they can be framed and used as art! Different types of shawl shapes, terms used in shawl making, and how to create each of the basic shapes will be covered as well as,. how to use and read the charts associated with each shawl, how to enlarge the basic shapes for normal ‘human’ use, and ways to use/add ‘designs and patterns’ to the basic shape side as for creating your own shawl – whatever size and shape.Workshop #: 131
