If you have Shirley’s first book, Knitwear Design Workshop, you’ll know all about Shirley Paden’s DAL legacy. Part knitting challenge, part design boot camp, the stakes have never been higher.

Design-A-long (DAL) 6 will kick off in January 2022 and run throughout April. Be sure, to sign up early and secure your seat at the Knitwear Design round table.

I will be a "Design Coach" for the DAL 6

along with other renown knitwear designers.

One of the patterns chosen to be a basis for design is my Guantlets. 

Knit in Artyarns Merino Cloud, they are one of my favorite pieces to have worked on because I met the challenge of mirroring the cable pattern on the gloves. 


I'll be teaching a few fun classes at the exciting fiber filled weekend. Check out more information on my EVENTS page.
