Cheers is a modular shawl I designed for a weekend workshop at The Yarn Club in Virginia Beach, now that the workshop is complete I can share it with you all!

Cheer’s begins with a shallow obtuse triangle that is worked from one end to the other. The top long edge of the triangle has an integrated i-cord edging, and the bottom edge is worked with a slipped stitch as the first stitch of every row.

Once the triangle is complete, stitches are picked up along this slipped stitch edge. Then a transitional 2 color border is worked with optional beads. The main color is then cut and an architectural lace border is worked in one color with optional beads. Finally the bottom edge is bound off and your shawl is ready to be blocked!

Yarn stores… do you think your shop might want to knit Cheers? I’ve got a mini version of it that you can use in class to teach your students everything they need to know to knit Cheers!!! Just get in touch if you are interested!
