Smock It! Shawl

May 16, 2019 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Join Daniela on Thursdays, May 9, 16 & 23 from 2 – 4pm. $85 plus materials.

Springtime calls for a fun and colorful shawl, ideally from Stephen West, whose patterns always include interesting new techniques and produce gorgeous, fun shawls! Smock It is worked sideways and uses 3 colors fading into each other. The border gathers stitches together using a smocked knitting technique and a picot bind-off for a dramatic finish. Blending the colors together so they fade from one into the next keeps this easy to knit shawl interesting, and is the perfect opportunity to put your finds from the Baah! trunk show at Compatto to good use! (trunk show this Friday, April 5).

Advance preparation may be required depending on the class topic. Details will be provided one week in advance or upon sign-up. Each weekly class session includes two hours of hands-on instruction, and extra help outside of class if needed and our time allows (it almost always does!). Yarn for classes must come from Compatto Yarn Salon, and we are always happy to help you choose the best yarn for your class or project. If you have questions about this or any other class, please give us a call at 310-453-2130.
