PFEILRAUPE SHAWL - SCARF- Workshop MAY l9/2016


Good Morning~ Designer1234 here.

I am delighted to open another wonderful class PFEILRAUPE SHAWL - SCARF
PinkFlowerPetal (Jackie who lives in Wales will be happy to lead you through the knitting of this wonderful shawl,scarf}.

It has been translated into English and Jackie has made a number of these scarves with different yarns and diffent sized needles - as well as different sizes.


Please find at the bottom of this post a download of a PDF which you are welcome to take home, and copy or keep on your computer for future use. Jackie has edited it very closely and it is an english version of a German (I believe) pattern. The download has been translated into english.

As most of you are aware, there are differences between the name of yarn weights and needle sizes. I will also post a needle conversion chart on this first page for your information. Jackie is the the UK so there will likely be a difference. Check with her
and then you can calculate the needle size in your area that is the same. This will help you figure out the yarn differences too as it will tell you the gauge.

******************************************
so: here is the PDF (document - of the Pfeilraupe Shawl - translated, for your information

Here is the following for your assistance.


Here is the conversion chart for knitting needles for your use. (I would suggest you add it to your notebook (I highly recommend that everyone have a notebook to write down information about all your projects.

Hello Everyone, and a Big Welcome to you all to join me in this my first Class/Workshop. As you probably already know, my name is Jackie. I live in the Brecon Beacons National Park here in Wales, in a small village with lovely views of the 'Beacons' which are mountains and hills. I feel very blessed.

It was here in KP that my attention was first brought to this lovely scarf/wrap. It works well in stripes, plain colour, or variegated yarn, I hope you will enjoy our journey together, and please ask Any questions, there are no 'silly' questions, and I will do my very best to help you all.

My very best wishes to you, and thank you for joining me, I hope we have fun, and end up with a scarf that we have pride in.


Jackie x

I was impatient to get started, because the yarn I am using is a very fine mohair with a metallic thread and variegated green through beige- always an unknown until you actually start knitting it! Hoping to get to know you better Jackie- My Mum is from the Portmadoc area. Told me so many stories of her young days climbing the hills around Snowdon , Port Meirion and other places about Criccieth and so on.She lived at Borth-y-Gest.

Hi Jackie, and thanks for running this workshop. I have read through the pattern, and definitely have some questions, so this workshop is very welcome!
I was glad to see your comment about how this pattern would work for a variety of yarns, not just solid color, because I have had these skeins of Mrs. Crosby Hat Box Mill ends (dk wt.) that I have been wanting to use.

Hi Jackie, I have a plain Red in 4ply for my first go and some colour changing DK for my second.

A question, do you think changing the stitch would would be an option as I think colour changing yarn works better on a flater stitch?

I love Brecon, been there many times (I was born and brought up in the vallies)

Hi Tina, changing the stitch would change the shape of the scarf, a flatter stitch like stocking stitch, seed stitch or moss stitch would make the scarf a lot wider than garter stitch - but you may like that?

I am not Welsh, I moved here 10 years ago, and I just love it.

Your yarn looks like it will make a lovely scarf.

Thank you for sharing your links with Wales.

Hi Jackie
I've read the pattern several times and am becoming less confused each time I reread it. So I'm going to take the plunge and join. I've ordered yarn and guess it will take a few days to arrive at my door. In the meantime I'll be watching and learning. Thanks to both you and Shirley for doing this.

hello Jackie and thank you for your input on this project.
my question at this time is a logistics one, since this is my first trip to the KP workshops.Is it possible to avoid having a message in my inbox every time there is a new post?. We haven't started yet and my inbox is full of messages for the workshop. Please advise.
Peace Marisa in Marietta, Ga USA
PS i am afraid of deleting b/c i do not want to be kick out of KP again!!!!

go to 'my profile' at the top of the page - you will see where you can click when you want the watched topics to come to you as well as the daily digest. Remove both.

Then the best way, and many more of us every day go to Newest Topics every day and pick and choose what topics we want to see.

Put a watch on the workshop, or put it in your bookmarks or write down the link and drop by 2 or 3 times a day to catch up. Jackie will answer questions when she is available.

So remove having your watched topics or the newslettrer from your profile and it will cut your mail down a huge amount.

The newsletter only gives you a few subjects so all in all it is better to go to newest topics, and put a watch on the workshop- then you can go to your watched topics to find the link. I always do it as well as a book mark for each of the workshops I am dealing with.

More and more of us are finding this much more satisfactory than having so many posts arrive on our mail. We have better control of what we watch.Once I have read the topics I am interested in, I 'delete the topics and start again the next day. You cover a lot more topics than the newsletter which only shows you a very few.
