Students will be looking at the unique construction and shaping of Faroese shawls. Far from being dainty objects, Faroese shawls are big, warm everyday wear that sit well on shoulders. Traditionally they use a different charting system and pattern writing system which we will go through in class. The students will knit a mini Faroese shawl which will teach them all the techniques they need to know before tackling a full-size project.
