A joyful exploration of shawl construction

I purchased the class not quite knowing what to expect, but had formulated in my own mind that it would be a set of how to processes and follow the bouncing ball and voila, a shawl is made.

It wasnt anything along those lines - what we have a an exploration of the different techniques that put together in a creative way means that you can construct your own version of a shawl. The content was sound, it covered a lot of ground and even though I am an experienced knitter I learnt so ...

Excellent insight into construction

This is not so much a course that teaches a specific skill (although the YO trick is brilliant!). Rather, Stephen elucidates shawl structures and draws connections between construction and outcomes. For me, this was precisely what I was hoping for as I am dabbling in designing my own pieces and really appreciate the various elements he discusses. If you are looking for a simple how-to with a predetermined end result, this course might not work for you.

Also, Stephen is just wonderful!

Very inspiring class

This class's been fun to watch - very inspiring and colorful. I love that Stephen shared his design process and encourage his students to think, not just copy ready-made patterns. That's very precious. So, if you expect a follow along class - that's not your choice. This class is for inspiration, for mind stretching, for creating your own projects. (Though Stephen gives you a solid basis to start creating your own designs). Highly recommend this class.
Thanks, Stephen.

Lot of inspiration

I greatly enjoyed the class. It provides ideas about changing the usual triangular shawl by locating increases in different places. I also liked the auditing of colors and where to pick up stitches with the blocking wires. I love his work.
