The yarn and needles (if necessary) can be purchased either before class starts or the first night of class. The class format will be a workshop. Students will be grouped based on the style of sweater. Students may work at their own pace, but I will give them target dates so that they will get the most out of the lesson topics.

Alpine Sunset is a picture postcard of a shawl, inspired by winter views in the mountains. We have added a little extra sparkle with BEADS.
This shawl is a cozy crescent shape, perfect for wrapping yourself up against the evening’s chill as you watch the sun sink out of sight behind the ridge. It features simple lace and chevrons that call to mind pine trees and peaks outlined across the glow of a winter sky.
