Class description: Pranayama is Sanskrit for Breath Work. Kate and Liza found that making this light and airy shawl felt like taking a breath of fresh air and so they named it the Pranayama Shawl. Come join Kate Madden from Ragline Knits for a fun knitting class where she teaches us how to knit the Pranayama Shawl using beautiful organic hand spun cotton yarns from Handspun Hope. The Pranayama shawl uses simple knit stitches and yarnovers to create a versatile shawl perfect for our warm Texas weather. Kate will also teach us how to use two very different sized needles to give your knits a lacey look without all the work!. Class attendees will receive a coupon code on Ravelry for a free download of the Pranayama Shawl pattern.
