Stephen West Shawl Mashup Class

Stephen West Shawl Mashup Class

125.00

In this workshop you will explore Stephen West’s shawl world as he demonstrates several of his top-down shawl construction methods. You will be given a handout in class filled with Stephen’s favorite techniques, stitch patterns, and shaping ideas. Stephen will help you mix your favorite elements together into your very own shawl mashup. You will be guided to either use a simple shawl shape to fill with texture and color if you prefer to follow a pattern as a guideline or you can also create your very own knitted shape if you like to improvise and experiment. Emphasis will be focused on experimenting with elements like colorful stripes, Westknits shortcut rows, and yarn overs. Prepare to be inspired!

Materials

Please bring a collection of 5-10 colors to that inspire you to create a new project or bring 2 colors minimum. You can work with standard fingering weight yarns and US 4-6 needles or bring larger needles and thicker textural yarns for a larger cozy fabric. Do not be afraid of bringing fun textures like fluffy alpaca or mohair. More is more and less is a bore with Westknits workshops! Your project may grow into a finished shawl masterpiece or you can use your project as a sample to explore new shapes and techniques.
