Loop is a happy and very fun shawl to knit.  It begins at the top and forms a crescent shape, ending with garter stitch and an i-cord bind-off. Only 1 color yarn is used at a time.

Students will leave class knowing: Garter tab start; Special “loop” stitch; I-cord bind off; and Tricks for carrying yarn up the side.

Supplies needed:
1 US 6 (4mm) and 1 US 4 or 5 circular needle (for the garter st) 24” or longer (circular needle just to contain number of stitches - it is not done in the round.)
Base color: 400 yards of solid or semi-solid fingering/sock yarn)
