Understanding Shawl Design at Edinburgh Yarn Festival, Edinburgh

Have you ever had an idea for a shawl, but not know how to translate your idea into knitting? Let shawl designer and lace expert Karie Westermann help you.

Karie will be taking you through the most common shawl constructions and give you tips on how to move beyond the basics. Together you will explore how to insert stitch patterns, design pattern transitions, and how to calculate stitch numbers. You will also look at how to remix well-loved stitch patterns and how to chart designs.
