Berlin in Winter is colder than most other big German cities – when travelling there, a big, cozy shawl (100” x 22”) like this will come in handy! The beautiful colors are reminiscent of bright city lights in dark winter nights. The shape of this shawlette is an asymmetrical, long triangle, formed by rows that are getting longer and longer as you go. They are worked in different simple, but very effective patterns that make them look a little like a skyline of tall houses. These skyscrapers are not built with bricks, but concrete and steel – hence the name, “Brickless.” And also: No more bricks in the wall that used to divide Berlin. This class will be taught by Yarnista & Cable Queen Janice Feld who will lead you through the third in this series of Behm’s wonders: 10 am to 12 pm on Wednesdays, March 21 & 28, OR 1 to 3 pm Saturdays, April 7 & 14.
