Fall Project Class: Knit the Nightshift!
Are you ready to knit up a unique Nightshift shawl or The Shift cowl? This beautiful shawl by Andrea Mowry looks quite impressive–and complicated!–but it is far simpler to knit than it looks. Using the slip stitch technique (mosaic knitting) you use only one strand of yarn per row. So, if you can knit stripes, you can knit a Nightshift shawl. Learn how to make this stunning piece and get started in this three-session class!
Participants should be advanced beginners who are comfortable knitting and purling, and are somewhat familiar with slip stitches (though we will go more in depth on those!). There will be several samples on hand to look at, and our instructor, Evelyn Bourne, can help you choose your colors in the first session if you’d like help making bold or muted color choices.
- Nightshift shawl or The Shift cowl pattern by Andrea Mowry
- 900 yards worsted-weight or DK-weight yarn (for Nightshift), or 600 yards of sport or DK-weight yarn (for The Shift); both items use several colors of yarn, or you can choose different colorways of long-color changing yarn (i.e. Noro or Feederbrook Farm).
- circular needles in size needs to get gauge with chosen yarn
