Bleeker Shawl - Spin A Yarn, Bovey Tracey, Devon

The Bleeker shawl has an interesting asymmetrical shape triangle/crescent shape and combines an easy lace pattern with garter stitch stripes and a saw tooth edge along the long edge of the shawl. The cast off edge has a scalloped lace edging. In the morning we'll practice the various techniques used in the Bleeker shawl including how to shape the shawl, neat colour changes for the stripes, a stretchy cast off, how to work the lace pattern and how to read a lace chart. 
In the afternoon, you'll cast on for your own Bleeker shawl. You will need two skeins of Malabrigo Mechita (the sample uses colours 005 Anniversario and 412 Teal Feather) or alternative yarn (two 100g skeins of sock/4ply yarn with approx 385m per skein) and 4mm needles (80cm circular needle is recommended but straight needles can also be used). 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, using your discount,  on the day  of workshop  if  preferred).
