Botanical Lace Shawl: “Juneberry Triangle,” by Jared Flood
Instructor: Amy Wentley
Saturdays: May 30, June 13, June 27 and July 11, 2020; 1:00 - 3:00 pm.
Juneberry is a Shetland-style triangular lace shawl that offers opportunities to learn new techniques. The knitting begins with a provisional cast-on of a few stitches at the center top; increases at the center spine and edges form the triangle shape. In the traditional Shetland style, a wide knitted-on edging unites with the live stitches at the perimeter for an elastic and seamless finish. Juneberry is worked from charted instructions, some of which require lace maneuvers on both sides of the work. The pattern also includes optional bobbles. Juneberry can be worked in DK-weight yarn to yield a wingspan of 44½″ or worsted weight yarn for a 61″ shawl.
Experience: Adventurous Intermediate. Students should have completed at least one lace project using charts. Should be comfortable knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, reading your knitting and reading charts.
