In this class we will dive into designing shawls. Using a simple template suitable for all skill levels, we will explore how to customize ponchos by size, swatching, incorporating different stitch patterns, colorwork, cabling, proper edgings, and optional finishes to spruce up your poncho. Finally, at the end of the class, I will give you a brief guide on how you can turn your poncho design into a written pattern (Note: we will be taking many notes for in this class, so have those notebooks and pencils ready ). This class is beginner friendly.
• Yarn: You'll eventually need 1,600–2,000 yards of worsted-weight yarn for your project, but you only need to bring 1 to 2 skeins to the class. One or multiple yarn colors welcome.
• Needles: Corresponding 40" circular needle size to your choice of yarn (usually size US 7/ 4.50 mm, US 8/ 5 mm, or US 9/ 5.50 mm).
