Event Details

 Teacher: Theressa Silver

With it’s cable backbone and garter stitch ridges this shawl has

a modern edge . Subtle shaping creates curved wings that stay

perfectly wrapped around your shoulders. The combination of

fingering and DK yarns adds even more texture and makes it a great

weight for keeping warm on a cool spring evening. Theressa will

take you step by step through the set-up process and explain how

the color transitions work. If you’ve never cabled before, that’s fine;

Theressa will teach you how! By the time you leave class you’ll be

ready to finish your project with confidence.


Skill Level: Confident Beginner

Materials: Approx. 400 yds fingering weight yarn AND 400 yds DK weight yarn, US size 5, 40” circular needle.

- We suggest a solid color for the ridges and a variegated for the main but ix it up anyway you'd like!

Yarns available for purchase at Weird Sisters or bring your own.

Pattern will be provided in class.
