Silverdale Shawl
Saturday, October 17, 2020
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM (EDT)

We will make a start on knitting this striking triangular shawl and I will take you through all the skill needed to finish the pattern. It's knitted, center out, primarily in garter stitch but with a patterned color change so it looks good on both sides. Also includes a great way to add new stitches down the middle to continue the chevron stripes. Shawl measures about 51" across the top and 41" along the diagonal sides but could be made bigger or smaller.

Supplies Students Need
Fingering weight yarn, about 760yds (190g) of main color and about 200yds (50g) of contrast color.
Two circular needles, size US#3 (3.25mm) and both at least 32" long (It's helpful but not essential if they are different colors). Note. Fingering weight yarns can vary according to brand and fiber content so try out other needle sizes as well to get a fabric you like the feel of using garter stitch.
Scraps of fingering weight yarn for the provisional cast ons in a color that will contrast with the stripes on the shawl.
Stitch markers.
Darning needle.
Gauge pictured is 26 sts/26 ridges (52 rows) to 4" measured over garter stitch but the shawl is not fitted so you do not have to be accurate (particularly if you are using different size needles).
