This is a duplicate of a project I was working on on another forum. I have added some items and changed some others - so it isn't just copy and paste.
I thought I'd I'd put down somewhere all the different "standard" shapes that shawls/wraps seem to come in, and some notes on how to get that shape - This is not including ponchos. I've also (for the most part) excluded consturction methods that involve piecing.
1b) puncuated equilibrium ( I'll explain later)
1e) Circumfrence inwards
2b) corner to corner
2c) in the "round"
2e) Perimeter INWARDS
2f) Triangular - pieced construction
2g) Log Cabin Construction
3) Variations on a circle:
3d) PR2 - type
4) Stole (rectangular)
- 4a-1) edge to edge
- 4a-2) on the bias
4b) worked across
4c) balanced halves
- 4c-1) from the ends
- 4c-2) from the middle
- 5a)Single triangle: tip to neck - increasing
5b) Single triangle: tip to neck - decreasing
5c) Double triangle - tip to neck, decreasing
5d) Single triangle - neck to tip; decreasing
5e) Double triangle - neck to tip, increasing
6b) edge up
6c) "mock" faroese
know I'm probably missing some basics - as I will probably screw up on some construction techniques - but what the hey....
