9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Learn how to knit a traditional hap (shawl) from the Shetland Islands. This beautiful heirloom shawl makes a great gift for a new baby and is a great introduction to Shetland lace knitting. We will make a mini version of this shawl in class (as a half hap) and students will leave with the necessary skills to make their own full-sized version at home. Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; beginner lace
Supplies for Class:
150 yards of fingering weight yarn in main color. Either 20 yards of three different contrast colors or 50 yards of one contrast color in fingering-weight yarn. US 7/ 4.5mm or US 8/5mm 24-inch circular needle (if you are a loose knitter use the smaller size needle). Stitch markers.
