Class Description:

Chain, Chain, Chain is an asymmetric garter stitch shawl that appeared in Knitty, Winter 2019. It features two asymmetric, but similar, slip stitch borders from Barbara Walker which are worked simultaneously with the shawl body. The vertical border, worked along the right edge, is stockinette. The horizontal border, worked along the top edge, is garter stitch. The two borders merge together at a dramatic point. The shawl features a continuous i-cord selvedge that begins with the cast-on, travels up each side, and finally, is worked as the bind-off. The i-cord features a single stitch in the contrast color worked every few rows, adding to the chain appearance. In the class, learn the i-cord cast-on and selvage. Work most or all of the point of the vertical border, ready to begin the easier garter stitch body. Tips for working the top, horizontal border and casting off will be discussed in class. This pattern reached #3 on Ravelry’s Hot Right Now list and Laura is teaching it here in Pittsburgh first.
