V-Shaped Shawl

About class

This stunning shawl is a variation of the quesquimitl that is worn throughout Central America. We think our version is the Queen of Shawls. The V-shape in the back of the shawl is the result of weaving the warp ends of one section into the warp of another still on the loom. Class begins with warp planning, choosing yarns, and warping a loom for your shawl. You may use your own materials or purchase yarns here at the studio. The rest of your time will be devoted to learning how to effectively weave your shawl and the proper finishing techniques.
