Stephen West Returns to BMYS – Shawl Evolution – SOLD OUT!

January 25 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Registration opens on Sunday, December 8 at 7:00PM via a link in our email.  Make sure you’re signed up for our newsletter.
Join Stephen West as he takes you on a shawl journey that begins with his very first triangular shawl pattern called Boneyard Shawl. We will experiment with stripes, short rows, and increases to transform our triangles into shapely shawl evolutions.
Ten years later, Stephen is still creating adventurous shawl shapes that transform from simple architectural forms into more complex splashy displays of color.
Emphasis will focus on experimenting with elements like colorful stripes, Westknits shortcut rows, and yarn overs.
Bring needles and 5 – 10 leftover bits of color to play with shawl construction.
After playing with different techniques, you will have the opportunity to cast on one of the projects from Shawl Evolution with Stephen’s help, or to mix up your favourite elements into your own shawl mashup.
Bring yarn and your chosen Westknits shawl pattern to cast on and enjoy an invigorating workshop filled with color and texture.
Materials: 5 – 10 colors to play with and yarn to cast on a pattern of your choice.
Mohair and alpaca yarns are encouraged to add some texture to your project.
Bring wound yarn and pattern to cast on during the class.
Wear your Westknits!
Don’t forget to bring your Westknits or other favorite knitted projects to show off and wear during the workshop.
Skill Level: Adventurous Beginner – Advanced
You must know how to knit and purl and work basic increases and decreases. Stephen will guide you through the rest of the playful techniques.
The Fine Print….
Classes will take place on the second floor of our shop and participants must be able to climb the equivalent of two flights of stairs.
Classes are non-transferable and non-refundable.
