Class Details:
This is a multi-part class. Attendees must register for all parts in order to take this class. 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. Please note that this class covers a lot of similar content as the Shetland lace class so it is recommended not to sign up for both. If you are an advanced lace knitter, take the Shetland lace class. 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.
