Vintage Winter Shawl Class

This class originated at the Charleston Museum as part of their historic outerwear exhibit in 2011. I have taught it for 3 years at the SC Knitting Guild's annual Knit Inn and had a blast doing so!  This Fall, by popular demand, the class returns to Charleston!

From a pattern first published in Godey's Lady's Book in 1864, this shawl is a vintage design with a timeless quality. You can knit it in neutrals, in jewel tones, in brights or even all one color. The rhythmic quality of the simple stitch pattern is conducive to long afternoons in the parlor gossiping with the other members of the Lady's Stitching Circle. And don't worry about deciphering the 19th century knitting instructions--I've done the work for you!

You'll need approximately 1200 yards of worsted weight wool (I used Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool). Knit it in 3 colors or just one, on US size 10 circular needles, 40". You'll also need stitch markers, including at least one that is a locking type, and a row counter of some sort.

When, Where, and How Much: Saturday, November 21, 2015, 2-4pm; Panera Bread, 5070 International Blvd, North Charleston; $25/student, ages 10 and up.
