    I want to learn how to create shawls because they look so nice and the patterns can usually be intragated into other projects

  2. Anita says:

    I’m always envious of knitters who look so put together and proudly wear their shawls. I want to learn how to create shawls that are custom and unique to fit my aesthetic.

  3. Michelle says:

    I want to learn how to create shawls with KNITTING because I usually crochet them. A new skill is always fun to learn.

    I want to learn how to create shawls because shawls are my go-to knitted garment that I wear almost every day!

    I want to learn how to create shawls because I love them. They’re my fave thing to knit and shawls go with every outfit.

  6. Missy Schmidt says:

    I love to learn and to make new shawls because they are the ultimate comfort!!! It’s like wrapping up in a hug!

  7. Vicki L Lynch says:

    I would like to learn to design shawls to better understand patterns by other designers and to put some ideas I have but can’t translate successfully to stitching yet.

  8. Lauren says:

    I want to learn to create shawls, because they are so much fun to knit. It will be fun to learn how to customize a totally unique shawl.

  9. Markie T. says:

    I want to learn to make shawls because they are a great accessory! I have made a handful and it would be terrific to design my own. I enjoyed this episode and started listening to Power Purls Podcast to fill in M, W, F traffic.

    • Suzanne says:

      I would love to learn more about making shawls so that I can incorporate the details and design features of my favorites but be the designer myself. Good luck Kara on your future endeavors

  10. Lori Biamonte says:

    I want to learn to create shawls on my own because the shawl then becomes an empty canvas for me to play with textures and colors.

  11. Kate says:

    I want to create shawls! My mother was a brilliant knitter and I have saved her old stitch dictionaries – some old ones – and I’d like to use dome of these lovely old patterns and have a go with a series of shawls. Another wonderful episode Marly- lived hearing Kara speak! Thanks! ❤

  12. Kathy Itson says:

    I want to learn to create my own shawls. I make shawls now following patterns and love doing them. But I have never made anything of my own.
