Over the Sea to Skye Shawl • Sunday, 1/20

$36.00

Sunday, January 20th
4:45-6:45 pm

This shawl is such a fun and interesting knit! And it looks more difficult than it is, so be prepared to receive lots of compliments when you wear it. It would make a fabulous gift, as well, since it knits up pretty quickly in a worsted or bulky-weight yarn. It is also fairly easily adaptable to another weight, if desired.

Time: One 2-hour class

Level 2 (Angora) – 3 (Alpine): In order to make the most of this class, you should be very comfortable knitting and purling, and ideally you would have followed a pattern before. We only need to cast on a few stitches for this pattern, so if you aren’t totally comfortable with casting on yet, that’s okay!

  • Knit & Purl

Skills you’ll learn:

  • yarn over (yo)
  • knit two together (k2tog)
  • read a chart
  • long-tail or cable/knitted cast-on
  • picot bind-off

Materials:

  • Woolfolk Far, Sew Happy Jane DK or approx. 620-660yds of DK yarn. A bulky or worsted-weight yarn on different needles could also be used, to make it thicker, smaller, etc, depending on what you what!
  • US9 32″-40″ circular needles
  • Over the Sea to Skye pattern, by Kalurah Hudson (we can also buy & print it for you in-store)
  • row counter
  • highlighter tape (recommended)
  • a skein of practice yarn in the same weight; or you can use the yarn you buy for the project

Tiffany Evitts started knitting about a year and a half ago, inspired to create knitwear during a winter in New Jersey. While it started out of necessity, it was soon a full-blown obsession, which led to her working here at Fuzzy Goat and consuming every bit of knitting and fiber knowledge possible!
