For the basic shawl lession, we will apply the basics learnt in our foundation class to work on a proper project. The objective of this shawl project is to learn how to make increases to achieve a triangle shape.
Choose either package:
- 1 sessions; small kit + 1 x 3hr of class to get you started
- 2 sessions; small kit + 2 x 3hr of class to get you started
*if you want to make a large shawl for the sessions package, topup yarn in person
Accordion is a very “simple-to-knit” shawl/wrap which is constructed by repeating “yarn over twice” lace ladder stitches. By one side increasing, this shawl will be formed into a right triangle shaped shawl. The Accordion in the picture is a large version made with 3 skeins of merino/silk fingering yarn.
This shawl is easily made small or large size or any size wanted by adding more yarn.
Yarn: 2/3 (small/large) skeins of Eve Chamber Textile’s Midnight Sky 4ply (75% merino, 25% Silk) 400m/100g (437yd/3.5oz)
Other yarn suggestions: Any fingering yarn with Wool/Silk blend would do the job. Please note! The more silk is in blend, the more drapery the fabric gets.
Gauge: 24 sts x 28 rows in 10cm x 10cm (4”x4”) in lace pattern after blocking. (4sts pattern repeats 6 times in 10 x10)
All hand-dyed yarn by KAIJUU Fibers are recommended to be:
- hand washed in cool water
- dry flat
- wash with a gentle detergent
and stored away from the sun.
