Meet Romi and get started by reviewing the stitches you'll be using to knit the High Sierra shawl. Romi also discusses gauge swatches, because gauge does matter in shawls!
It’s time to start knitting! In this lesson, Romi shows you how to cast on and work the first section of the shawl. Plus knit a reverse I-cord bind-off and see how to pick up stitches easily.
Lace and modular knitting may sound intimidating, but they're actually really simple. Learn how to work the second section of your shawl, then add lace and stripes. You'll see the peaks of your High Sierra shawl start to take shape!
Now that you've got the hang of modular knitting, do it again, but this time on the other side! Romi talks you through picking up stitches from the wrong side, then troubleshoots dropped yarn overs.
Ready to complete your shawl? In this final lesson, you'll work through the last modular section, determine your final stripe pattern, and bind-off. Then block your shawl with Romi and see how the lace transforms.

Romi Hill

Romi Hill lives on the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada mountains in northern Nevada, where the high desert nights are cool and the air is clear and crisp. A lifelong crafter and knitter, she's inspired by the surroundings in her corner of the world, and her designs have an organic flow. Romi specializes in lace of all weights, and you can see her full pattern collection on Ravelry. Romi's lace book from Interweave Press, "New Lace Knitting" was published in 2015 and features timeless patterns for garments and accessories. She loves dark chocolate with chili peppers and she's a sucker for a great pair of cowboy boots.
