Welcome to the next episode of my Shawl Design for Everybody series! Today’s topic in our shawl design course are exotic shawl shapes.
S-shaped shawls are best worked by using short rows. Start with short row turns on the left side, then – in the next section – do the turns on the right side, and repeat.
Leaf-like shaped shawls are achieved by increasing for a while, then decreasing again, while at the same time implementing paired increases & decreases. Sounds complicated, doesn’t it? I’ll provide a pattern template (and an example shawl!) as part of the Plant Anatomy project soon. Stay tuned!
Thanks for joining my free online course on shawl design! I hope you enjoyed my posts and the series. In case you want to go into further detail with shawl design, I recommend my three volume book series on the subject: Shawl Design in Plain English.
