Hiraeth Shawl - two session

gather here Classes

Celebrating the release of Laine's 52 Weeks of Shawls, we selected the Hiraeth designed by Claire Walls. "I wanted to design a shawl that was pure comfort to knit and wear. It is an extremely intuitive knit that you can get lost in. The name Hiraeth is Welsh for homesickness or nostalgia, and I first started thinking of this pattern after I had moved from the UK to Canada."

What you’ll learn: It's a triangular shawl knit prominently in garter stitch which is broken up by three panels of lace. You cast on all the stitches at the widest edge and decrease along the left side to give the shawl its shape.

Limited to 4 students (16 yrs of age or older); 2 students required for class to meet. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.
  • Level:  Confident Beginner/Intermediate. You can cast on, knit, purl and bind off.
