A friend showed up at the shop wearing her just-completed Colorwork Crescent Shawl and we were all immediately besotted. The play of color combined with the geometric lace makes for a modern, wearable shawl/scarf. We wrote to Kieran Foley the next day and asked permission to center a class around the project, and he agreed!
We've spread out the class dates to give you plenty of knitting time. You can revel in the challenge—and the pleasure—of the project.
This project is also a great stashbuster—supplement your odds and ends of Jamieson & Smith or Shetland Spindrift with some main color skeins of our J.C. Rennie Supersoft 4ply and you are going to have an unbelievably beautiful finished piece.
