April 21, 2018 - Sue McKinnel will teach techniques for a  Lace Knitted Shawl. To make the shawl, requirements are:  14 oz, 1,444 yards, or 1,320 meters of fingering weight yarn (wool or wool blend is best), US #4 (3.5 mm) circular knitting needle, tapestry needle for Russian join, stitch counter or pen/pencil and paper to count rows, stitch markers to delineate central spine and/or pattern areas.  The pattern is available on the Free Pattern page.

If people just want to try the garter tab start with spare yarn prior to starting the shawl, Sue recommends bringing a few ounces of worsted weight yarn and US 6, 7, or 8 needles.  (Sue used US 6).
