Knitting Classes

Papillon / Butterfly Shawl

This short row, very popular Papillon/Butterfly shawl looks lovely in either a long transition mutli-colorway or in placed color. There is a lot of counting and this is very important. It is not a great project to knit while only partially focused in the short row sections. But there is also a lot of plain, garter knitting employed. For every short row section, there are rows in between that are more simple to execute.

Let us help you knit this beautiful shawl! Class will meet four times and you’ll leave with your shawl underway to continue happily on your own or come back to the shop and knit with us!
