Member Update // New Design Your Own Triangular Shawl Course

52201 Design Triangular Shawl Hedrick

If you’re a knitter looking to expand their skills into the knit design world, maybe interested in putting a good stitch pattern to use, we’re happy to share our new Design Your Own Triangular Shawl course, taught by Tabetha Hedrick!

From conceptualization to swatching, gauge, crunching numbers, and blocking the final piece, Tabetha walks you through every single step of designing a top-down, triangular shawl shape. You’ll learn how to work all of this together into your very own design!

A classic knit accessory, the triangular shawl is fabulous to work on these new skills. With a little bit of math and helpful ways on how to draw out a chart, you’ll come away with everything needed to design your own shawl for any yarn or stitch you might be dreaming of.

For questions, or to share your progress, they can be posted at the SOS forums and tagged on Instagram with #sosknittingdesign. This course will also be part of the lesson material in our upcoming SOS Knitting Study Group – we hope you’ll join us there!
