How do you knit shawls?
There are so many interesting ways to knit shawls!
Shawl knitting is such a fun and relaxing hobby and there are many different ways to create them. You can knit them back and forth - like a scarf, or from point to point, on a diagonal, or create a triangle.
In this course, you'll learn step-by-step how to knit five unique shawls using any weight yarn. That's nearly 35 different shawl options you can create!
Let's take a look at everything included in this online knitting class.
