As Seen in Viking Magazine

Remember the Mermaid Shawl shown in the September 2010 issue of Viking? If you're like me, you've been meaning to make it ever since it graced our cover. If you live in the Twin Cities, there's good news: You can attend a free "knit-along" on Mon., March 19 at the Yarn Garage in Rosemount, Minn., to create this wardrobe staple—just in time for spring!

In addition to some basic knitting skills, you'll need the Mermaid Shawl pattern (available in Viking or from the Yarn Garage), 400–600 yards of Yarn Garage yarn (depending on shawl variation), and a set of size 9 needles. Participants should come to class with your yarn selected and the first six rows completed. For more information or to RSVP, follow this link, or call the Yarn Garage at 651-423-2590.

Amy Boxrud is editor of Viking magazine. She lives with her family in Northfield, Minn., where she’s a member of Nordmarka 1-585.
