Designing and Knitting your Triangular Shawl


Designing and knitting your Triangular Shawl Knitting


Level – Advanced


When my daughter was pregnant, I decided to knit her a shawl for the long winter nights where she no doubt would be up and be nursing her new-born. I designed different motives to do with her as a mother, the things that were meaning full in her life. This became a labour of love but the result is something she treasures and I am very proud of.

We will design a shawl together and plan the execution. Throughout the process I will be at hand to help you create this heirloom.
