Musicality Shawl Class

The Musicality Shawl by Carissa Browning will engage you with colorplay and interesting techniques. The shawl moves from simple garter stripes to Mosaic color work and then adds a bit of two color brioche before finishing with beaded lace! (beads are optional)

The result is a fabulous shawl that is as fun to wear as it is to knit. We'll meet every other week allowing for plenty of time to work on the shawl between classes.

Prerequisites: The student must be able to cast on, knit, purl and bind off as well as have some previous experience knitting and completing a project.

Skills Taught: Mosaic knitting, two color brioche, simple lace with beads.
