Wanting to design your own shawl but get hung up on the math? In this class, Karen will show you some simple formulas to create basic shapes for shawls. We will work top down and discuss the issues with bottom-up shaping for three of the most popular shapes. The discussion will include tips on incorporating stitch patterns into your final projects. You’ll go home with a cheat sheet of formulas to use in your own projects!
