Knit Sisu Shawl Design Workshop

Teacher: Jill Tamminen

Cost: $150

When: Sundays, September 15 & 22, 2:30–4:30pm

Description: Designing for yourself (and others) builds confidence in knitting and boosts creativity! Join Jill Tamminen from Knit Sisu as she takes participants from the foundation of following patterns to designing their own shawl, cowl, or wrap. The workshop will cover shawl structure and construction, yarn fiber and color choices, stitch patterns, and how to make your own unique ideas come to life. The Knit Sisu Shawl Design workbook will be provided in class, along with sample shawls, time to create a design and cast on, and opportunities to troubleshoot any questions that may arise in the designing process.

Prerequisites: Participants should have a basic knowledge of knitting (how to cast on and bind off, knit and purl, and work increases and decreases).

Homework: None.

Min/max number of participants: 4/8

Materials to bring along:

  • You will choose and purchase yarn for your shawl during the first class.
  • Please bring a variety of needle sizes according to the weight of yarn you are likely to select (for reference: fingering, US3–5; sport, US4–6; DK, US6–8; worsted, US7–9)


Jill Tamminen is the owner and designer of Knit Sisu knitting patterns. She designs for the Everyday Knitter with clear, accessible, unfussy knitting patterns, and always provides support along the way.

Along with being a designer, Jill is a professional knitting instructor. Having worked with individuals and groups of knitters of all skill levels, Jill understands what knitters want (and do not want) out of a project. She has been a published and featured designer for many yarn companies and dyers, has multiple published designs, and has been featured on the K2Tog podcast and on Twisted Stitches. 

What is SISU? Sisu is a Finnish word that describes a mindset of quiet strength, determination, courage, humility, resilience, and gratitude. Jill grew up with Sisu, and tries to carry its wisdom into all aspects of her life.

When she's not knitting, you can find Jill on long walks or hikes with her husband, practicing yoga, cooking, reading, or playing with their pup, Sig.
