KAL with Kirsten
- laceweight/fingering weight/sock weight yarn – if you want to do something with more complicated lace, it would be better to go with a more semi-solid yarn. Kirsten used Kangaroo Dyer Semi-Solid Sock Yarn
- US 6 circular needles recommended, but it can be done on straights if you prefer
- Valley Yarns Basics B-6
Kirsten uses a regular cast on for this, but you could do a provisional cast-on if you like.
Follow the directions in the pattern and increase 4 stitches every right side row. If you want to add lace, make sure you keep the increases and decreases even in the middle and at the edges.
For next week: Consider where you would like to end your shawl, what kind of edging you’d like to do, if you do not want to use what is in the pattern.
Guest: Stitchy McYarnpants and Caro Sheridan, authors of the new book Knitting It Old School. The book re-envisions vintage looks and patterns from the 1940s-1970s in both knitting and crochet. Stitchy and Caro discuss how the book came to be and share a bit of what they went through creating it.
One of our amazing customers, Cheryl Burke has a hat in this book too! A few projects in the book are even knit in our own Valley Yarns.
Stitchy and Caro will be at the store with us Saturday, October 9th 11:00am-2:00pm to sign books and show off the fantastic garments that are in the book.
