KNITTING TUTORIAL: BAUHAUS MITERED SHAWL

From now our weekly video episodes will feature more knitting tutorials supporting the featured kit in the newsletter. That way you can discover our new kits even quicker and you will have direct support using the comments section.

This week Bjorn will start with the wonderful Bauhaus Mitered Shawl:

The design of SKEINO’s MITERED SHAWL was inspired by the German BAUHAUS school of design. Bjorn’s weaving teacher Margarete Reichardt was a former Bauhaus student. She studied under the direction of Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky. In memory of his time working with her in her workshop he created this shawl.

The easy design is based on three mitered squares which are seamlessly worked in one piece to form the shawl. This luscious yarn is DK weight and the fibers are extra fine merino 19.5 micron. The yarn is treated superwash for an easy care. The Garter Stitch pattern supports the characteristic graphical shape.

The design comes in two different color options:

1. Three skeins in the same color: The first skein will be knitted up in a diamond shaped square with an increase line in the middle. After finishing this you use half of the stitches for a right and a left second and third square of the same size. These two squares have a decrease line in the center.

2. Three skeins in three different colors: All three colors are being used for the three squares. The pattern provides a chart, which is easy to follow. Otherwise everything is the same.

Don’t pass up this opportunity to knit this exiting piece for yourself or someone else. This interesting shape is very easy to knit. The handpainted yarn will not pool or zigzag because of the constant increases or decreases. The three color version will create a stunning effect, almost a one of a kind piece.

This is a great beginners piece and you will have fun with it when you see the construction growing.

 

Please let me know what you think about this new format. Feel free to leave your comments and questions here in the comments sections or directly on Youtube.

 

Love,

Bjorn

  1. Thank you all so much! I enjoy this site more than any other! I have learned so much from watching Bjorn! This wonderful soothing voice, easy to understand instructions are right on target! I feel ” like the old dog learning new tricks”. I love this beautiful new shawl, and the lee way to make it my own. Thank you again from a 70 yrs old grandma in New Orleans 🐩❤️

    • Hi Carolyn,
      After finishing the first square you divide the stitches on your needle in half. One half will be used for square 2 and one half will be used for square 3. These stitches are half of what you need to start square 2 and 3. Therefor you have to cast on the same number of stitches for the setup row. Lets say your first square ends with 145 stitches = on your needle are 72 stitches + 1 center stitch + 72 stitches. 72 stitches are going to be used for #2 and 72 stitches are being used for #3 (the 1 center stitch needs to be bind off). For the setup row you need to cast on and adding to the 72 stitches: 1 center stitch and 72 stitches. This for both sides the same procedure. The shawl will be seamless. I hope this helps.
