Class Description: Did you purchase one of the 5 LYS Day kits dyed up through the collaboration of Storyteller Yarn & Arkaik Fibres? All 5 kits were designed to showcase a knit and a crochet shawl from two incredibly talented designers who may not be on your radar yet. For the knitters out there, we have the Leah shawl by Anthony Casalena. This class is for those who wish to knit this shawl. This is a top down, garter stitch shawl that includes stripes, short rows, and a variation of feather and fan lace. It is suitable for those who are ready to learn these techniques.

There is a touching story behind the design which Anthony relates on Ravelry and in the pattern.

Finished Measurements:
80” / 203cm wingspan along top edge, 18” / 46cm CO to BO along center. Measurement Taken After Blocking.

 Material Needed:

  • Pattern: Leah by Anthony Casalena
  • Yarn: 2 – 100g hanks of fingering weight yarn in 2 contrasting yarns. One should be solid to nearly solid and the other speckled or variegated.
  • Needle: US #7 (4.5mm) circular 40” long or size needed to get gauge.
  • Stitch markers
  • Darning or tapestry needle
  • Point protectors

Gauge: 21 stitches and 36 rows to 4”

 Skills you should have: You should have the minimum skills of casting on and knitting with a few completed projects under your belt.

Skills you will learn: You will learn how to create a garter stitch tab start for top down shawls, how to carry yarn up the side for narrow stripes, short rows, and feather and fan lace which is one of the simplest lace patterns to learn.

Homework: Please purchase all materials and have yarn wound before class time. It would also be a good idea to swatch to make sure of your needle size before class if you are typically a loose or tight knitter.
