This class will cover the key techniques within the Florence Shawl pattern. Starting with the botanical-inspired trim, students will work modularly and use a mix of methods to create two flower ‘units’. Once the flowers are made, their live and edge stitches will be picked up to form the base of a garter stitch swatch that can double as a gauge swatch. As the crescent shape of the shawl is achieved through short rows, this method will also be explained and demonstrated by the instructor. Skills covered in the class include: working modular, two methods of making bobble stitches (crochet and knit method), slip stitches, picking up live and edge stitches, shaping (within the flower ‘units’ and body of shawl).
