St Aubin's Bay - Spin A Yarn, Bovey Tracey, Devon
St Aubin's Bay is an elegant crescent shaped shawl worked from the top down with an eyelet garter stitch pattern. Two short row wedges and a beaded picot cast/bind off adds interest to a fun accessory.
In the morning we'll practice the techniques used to knit this shawl including short rows, adding beads using a crochet hook, picot cast-off and how to shape the shawl.
In the afternoon you will start your own St Aubin's Bay shawl.
You will need two skeins of 100gr/400m sock yarn (4ply/fingering weight yarn), 4mm circular needles (80cm long), 67 6mm miracle beads (or alternatively seed beads can be used) and 0.75mm crochet hook.
Pattern will be provided. All materials for the morning will be supplied but please bring materials as above for the afternoon project (this can be purchased in the shop on day of workshop if preferred).
Suitable for confident novice and intermediate knitters.
