JC Briar: Wedge Shawl Design



With National Instructor JC Briar

Stunning shawls are often formed of lace “wedges,” sections that gradually grow wider as the knitting progresses. Triangular shawls formed of two wedges are a familiar option. But shawls of three or more wedges are also possible, and often sit more securely on the wearer’s shoulders. Take this class to learn how to design a wedge shawl of your own. Pick from a selection of lace wedges, or learn to tweak your favorite lace pattern into a wedge shape. Choose your edgings, and a “spine” to appear between the wedges. By the end of class, you’ll be well on your way to a new, unique shawl.

Required Materials: 

  • Instructions provided by JC at class
  • Yarn - Lace weight to DK weight yarn to practice your shawl design (please do not select a lace weight yarn if you have never used it before!)
  • Needles - Size appropriate for your yarn (choose a needle 1-2 sizes larger than the size listed on the ball band of your yarn)
  • Notions - knit kit, including locking stitch markers, contrast color waste yarn, crochet hook, pencil & eraser (graph paper will be provided), stitch dictionaries (optional)
Homework - None
