Knit the St Aubin's Bay shawl with Anniken Allis
St Aubin's Bay is an elegant crescent shaped shawl worked from the top down with an eyelet garter stitch pattern. Two short row wedges and a beaded picot cast off adds interest to this beautiful and fun accessory.
In the morning we'll practice the techniques used to knit this shawl including short rows, adding beads using a crochet hook, picot cast off and how to shape the shawl.
In the afternoon, you will start your own St Aubin's Bay shawl. You will need two skeins of 100 grams/400 metres sock yarn or other 4 ply/fingering yarn, a 4 mm, 80 cm, circular needle, 67 6 mm beads and a .75 mm crochet hook. The pattern will be provided.
All materials for the morning will be supplied but please bring materials as above for the afternoon. This workshop is suitable for confident beginners and intermediate knitters. Registration is limited to 6 participants so book early if you can!
