Event Details


Teacher: Theressa Silver

Brioche and garter stitch combine in this shawl to create vertical

and horizontal stripes. This is a great project for playing with color

and texture. The sample shawl was knit with a speckle gradient

yarn combined with a semi-solid. Theressa will take you through the

set up and shaping for a crescent shawl and teach the basic brioche

stitches. By the time you leave class you will have worked several

repeats of the pattern and be ready to finish the shawl at home.


Skill Level: Students must be comfortable knitting and purling, and

have experience reading a pattern.

Materials: 2 skeins (at least 400 yards each) of contrasting colors

of fingering weight yarn, US size 5 40 inch circular needle.

Available for purchase at Weird Sisters or BYOY (Bring your own yarn!).

Pattern will be provided in class.
