Shawl Evolution
Join Stephen West as he takes you on a shawl journey that begins with his very first triangular shawl pattern called Boneyard Shawl. We will experiment with stripes, short rows, and increases to transform our triangles into shapely shawl evolutions. Ten years later, Stephen is still creating adventurous shawl shapes that transform from simple architectural forms into more complex splashy displays of colour.

Emphasis will focus on experimenting with elements like colourful stripes, Westknits shortcut rows, and yarn overs. Bring needles and 5 - 10 leftover bits of colour to play with shawl construction. After playing with different techniques, you will have the opportunity to cast on one of the projects from Shawl Evolution with Stephen's help, or to mix up your favourite elements into your own shawl mashup.

Bring yarn and your chosen Westknits shawl pattern to cast on and enjoy an invigorating workshop filled with colour and texture.

Materials:
Bring 5 - 10 colours to play with and yarn to cast on a pattern of your choice. Mohair and alpaca yarns are encouraged to add some texture to your project. Bring wound yarn and pattern to cast on during the class.

Wear your Westknits! Don't forget to bring your Westknits or other favourite knitted projects to show off and wear during the workshop.

Skill Level: Adventurous Beginner - Advanced
