The Knitter - Gwenna Shawl & Design Master Class

Look whose design is on the cover of The Knitter this month! The Knitter 117 will be in the shops this week, I think. My shawl, Gwenna, is on the cover and it's also the basis of a shawl design master class I wrote this month. 

The Knitter says: 'Crescent shawls are such a lovely shape to wear as they sit well around your shoulders. This wide crescent design is worked from the bottom up and features a deep lace border; the upper section is worked in garter stitch and is shaped using short rows.
A beautiful shawl deserves a special yarn and Anniken has chosen a hand-dyed sock weight yarn created by indie dyer Truly Hooked, which blends merino, silk and yak fibres.'

The Shawl Design Master Class covers all the things you need to think about when you want to design a shawl such as choosing the shape, stitch pattern and yarn. I also talk specifically about designing Gwenna.

I knitted Gwenna is Truly Hooked Yak Singles. I've been wanting to use this yarn for a while. It's a luscious blend of merino/silk/yak which is super soft and of course I LOVE the hot pink colour. I LOVED knitting with this yarn. It's perfect for shawls. I'll definitely be adding more of this to my stash!
