Join us for a “Choose Your Own Adventure” Stephen West Shawl Knit-Along! March 23, 2016 – Posted in: Events, Project Ideas


Stephen West is a modern and innovative designer known for pushing the envelope when it comes to colour, texture, and construction. He is best known for his stunning shawl patterns and we at Espace Tricot have long been under his spell.

Stephen is also known for creating Mystery Knit Along projects that are always fun and creatively inspiring.  Over the course of these knit alongs, new clues are sent out to participants on a weekly basis, providing the directions needed to complete the next part of the project.  While diving into a project without knowing what the final outcome will look like is delightful for some, many prefer to wait until the full project is revealed before committing their time and precious yarn.

If you are one of these people, we invite you to join us as we host a “choose your own adventure” Stephen West Knit-Along in-store! Knit-alongs provide camaraderie and great incentive to keep you on track with your progress. Select any Stephen West shawl pattern you would like to knit and join us for a 4 week knit-along beginning April 12th.

On the first night we will share all of the Stephen West patterns we’ve knit and invite participants to do the same.  This will help those who haven’t decided on a pattern to select one and provide added inspiration to those who’ve decided on a shawl but haven’t seen it in person. To save time, participants are also welcome to visit the store in advance to finalize their project selection and yarn choices so they’re ready to hit the ground running on the first night. Once projects are chosen, our consultants will provide help in selecting yarn and getting everyone started.  We will continue working on the projects throughout the month with consultants providing ongoing assistance with all of the techniques required for each project on a weekly basis. Participants are also invited to join our knitting clinics on Friday afternoons for additional help and trouble-shooting if desired.

Browse Stephen West shawl patterns on Ravelry.
