Dressel Shawl designed by Megi Burcl

This Greek inspired shawl combines two different color knitting techniques: Intarsia and Stranded/Fair Isle. This pattern was given an advanced rating by Interweave because of the multiple steps and techniques which keep it from getting boring. Students should be skillful in knitting and purling and familiar with the M1 increase. The shawl is not "hard" but will require attention to detail to complete.

In Part One, Karen will guide you through the garter tab beginning for a top down shawl then show you how fun and easy Intarsia knitting can be.

In Part Two, we will focus on the Stranded /Fair Isle method and also demonstrate and discuss the pattern instructions to aid you in finishing this beautiful work of art.
