Come experience the colorful world of Westknits and learn all about Stephen West's marled tricks for combining multiple yarns. We will experiment with holding 2 strands of yarn together to create fabrics that look like painted works of art. Choose between Stephen's Marled Magic shawl design or Samen shawl - all skill levels are welcome!

You will need a colorful pile of fingering weight yarns and a US 8 (5 mm) circular needle to begin the Marled Magic Shawl. Stephen recommends bringing a color palette of 7-10 colors to start the Marled Magic design. For example, bring shades of blue or create a warm color palette with pinks, oranges, and reds. If you want a super colorful shawl, bring a bag full of colorful fingering weight yarns to stripe and play! Lace weight mohair yarns are also highly encouraged.

Bring 5 different colors (full skeins) of lace weight yarn and a US 5 (3.75 mm) circular needle if you prefer to knit the Samen shawl. (If you are a tight knitter, use a size US 6 (4 mm) or US 7 (4.5 mm) needle.)

In the beginning of the class you'll experiment and play with color combinations and then there will be time to start your shawl project in the second half of class.

If you choose to knit the Samen shawl, please also bring a collection of scrap yarn (approximately 7-10 colors of fingering weight yarn) and US 8 (5mm) needles to play with marled color techniques. Mohair and fluffy textures are also encouraged!
