Six By Six KAL with Nancy Lekx on Zoom



Here’s a “Plug and Play,” or “Choose your own Adventure” type of pattern—a recipe for a lacy, top-down triangular shawl, suitable for any weight of yarn or gauge, which can be knit to any size.  The six interchangeable stitch patterns are all six-stitch repeats, and you can arrange them any way you want to personalize your shawl.  Specific instructions are given in the pattern for the three samples I’ve knit, as well as general rules for you to follow for your own designs.  Knitters participating in HOKC's KAL will receive additional resources, and invitations to 5 Zoom meetings where we can learn, plan, and knit together.  For the first meeting, bring some yarn and appropriately sized needles for swatching, even if you haven't chosen the exact yarn you want to use for your shawl. 

Participants need to have bought a pattern to join the KAL.
