In this 4-week class, students will learn to knit a Telea shawl - a light shawl, perfect for the spring! This two-color shawl knits up into a triangle and it's totally customizable! Some of the techniques we will learn in class are as follows:
- Increase stitches
- Decrease Stitches
- Variations of the knit stitch
- Shape garments
- Knitting with 2 different colors
- Slip Stitches
- Picking up Stitches
Skill Level: 2. Students must be comfortable with casting on, knitting, and purling before taking this class. It is the perfect project for someone who is comfortable with basic knitting but wants to take their knitting knowledge to the next level.

www.knitpicks.com has excellent fingering weight yarn options. I love “Stroll” (it feels like a cloud) and “Hawthorne.”
www.JimmyBeansWool.com also has excellent yarn options! Madeline Tosh is very popular and oh so colorful.
www.QuinceandCo.com is also wonderful for yarn.
Many of these websites have good knitting needles though Brittney is partial to Knit Picks. Joann's and Hobby Lobby should also have fingering weight yarn and needles. The Dutch Oven Yarn shop in Alanson has wonderful fingering weight yarn as well. Please contact Brittney if you have any questions or want help picking out yarn colors!
