Crochet Shawl Workshop
Part 1:
Crochet Shawl Workshop: Side-to-Side Shawl
Marly Bird
Side-to-side shawls can appear daunting, but it’s actually one of the easiest shawl styles to construct. Using simple increases and decreases and basic crochet stitches, Marly Bird shows you how to create a mesh-like stitch pattern, keep track of your shaping as you go, and customize the size of the shawl by working more or less shaping rows. When the shawl is finished, you’ll learn how to weave contrasting tassels through the mesh stitches to create a must-have fringed accessory. 
Part 2:
Crochet Shawl Workshop: Crescent Shawl
Marly Bird
In this class, Marly Bird shows you how to make a classic crescent shawl that begins with a fanciful trim. Once the trim is complete, she shows you how to gradually create the body of the shawl by working short rows, attaching it to the trim as you go. This shawl construction is ideal for customization—you can use any stitch pattern you like and make it your preferred length. The version Marly shows here is a stunning wide shawl with a shallow depth, perfect for wearing like a scarf.
Part 3:
Crochet Shawl Workshop: Triangle Shawl
Marly Bird
Learn how to make a classic top-down triangle shawl with a fabulous multi-color trim. This shawl gets its iconic shape from a series of center and wingspan increases, so it grows in length and width as you go. The super-fun trim features an array of textured stitch patterns and pop colors, which will keep you on your toes. Marly encourages you to get creative with customization—you can swap out colors or stitch patterns on the trim and make the shawl as big or small as you like. Wear this shawl over your shoulders in traditional shawl style, or wrap it with the point dangling over your shoulder like an oversized kerchief.
