Saturday 13th July 2019 - 10am to 4pm at Purlescence HQ, Newbury


Boo Knits patterns are designed by Bev Johnson, an avid knitter and compulsive collector of yarns who lives and designs in the heart of rural England.

This is a class for knitters who want to explore the world of shawl knitting and by the end of it you will have started to knit your own shawl.

During the class, we will be learning about:

  • Different shapes of Shawls
  • Types of yarn and their suitability for different shawl patterns.
  • Types of needles
  • Different stitches to create lace

Bev will also take you through:

  • Make a garter stitch tab
  • Make increases at each end of our rows Read from a chart
  • Use and deal with moving stitch markers Place a bead onto a stitch
  • Work a picot bind off
  • Block a shawl

By the end of the day you will have a miniature shawl comprising the componants of the shawl pattern and have started your own shawl. More over, you will have made new friends, had fun and have fallen in love with lace! (Not to mention enjoyed home made cakes, lunch and hot and cold drinks)
