Description

Lunae is a striking, contemporary, triangular shawl with horizontal and vertical mosaic bands. With mosaic knitting each row of knitting is done with only one color at a time. The stitches in the second color are slipped without being knitted. It’s the easiest form of colorwork! 

First the upper body of the shawl is worked from side to side. Then stitches for the lower shawl body are picked up at the lower edge of the upper shawl body. From there the shawl is worked downwards with further shaping to get the elongated triangular shape of the shawl. 

There are many interesting stitches and techniques to be covered in class including reading mosaic charts (the mosaic colorwork is only charted), increases, the star stitch, mosaic stitches, picking up stitches, adding a new color, weaving in ends as you knit, a stretchy bind off, and tassels (optional).

Intermediate Skill Level: must be able to cast on, bind off, knit, purl, read/follow a pattern, and work a variety of stitch patterns with combinations of knits and purls.

The class sessions have been spaced out to allow time for knitting, note different hours! Class meets on Wednesdays (Eastern):

  • January 12, 2022 from 1:00 – 4:00 pm
