Workshop meets Saturday, September 15th from 2:30 - 5:30pm
In this class, you will make a very tiny version of an Ess Shawl from Marlisle: A New Direction in Knitting in order to understand all the techniques you will need for a full size version. This class doubles as a swatch for an Ess Shawl AND an introduction to Marlisle and the knotted steek (or steeking in general, if you have never cut your knitting before). The knotted steek is an unusual approach to steeking that is ideal for maintaining the stretchiness of your knitted fabric in a way that many steeks do not. In the Ess Shawl, it is used to create an attractive fringed edge that doesn’t require you to loop additional yarn in, as you are using your unravelled steek section. The knotted steek is also used in the Shantay Cardigan and Ruperto Scarf in the same book, so this will set you up to tackle not just the Ess Shawl, but many other projects with more confidence.
