Spring has sprung and the Charles Town Farmer’s Market has opened! Join me at Yarnability on Saturdays April 29, May 13, and May 27 from 1p-3p (after the market) to knit On the spice market, a shawl design by Melanie Berg. This gorgeous shawl is the perfect warm wrap for the chilly early morning at the market, but its light enough to keep wearing as the sun warms up the day.
Supplies Needed: Main color: 350-400 yards of sport weight yarn or fingering weight yarn and 5 contrasting colors: 80 yards of sport weight or 120 yards of fingering weight yarn.
In-store model and yarn choice for project is Frabjous Fibers mini skein packs in sport or fingering weight yarns. The Wired Alpaca is also available in store in mini skein sets.
Needles: US size 4 for fingering weight yarn and US size 6 for sport weight yarn
Pattern: Please purchase and bring to class the On The Spice Market shawl on Ravelry. In-store purchase of pattern via Ravelry is also available.
Skills Learned: changing yarn colors, carrying yarn up rows, short rows, increases, and bobbles
Skills Needed: Must know how to proficiently knit and purl. Be comfortable with reading a pattern.
* Original pattern is written for 6 contrasting colors. We have chosen to use mini skein packs of 5 contrasting colors and adjust accordingly. Those knitters who would like to use 6 contrasting colors are encouraged to do so and may opt to add additional yarn from in-store purchase or from their stash.
