Overview

Indulge yourself in hand-painted and lace yarns. Many shawl projects take only one skein!

What is actually more popular than knitting socks? Knitting shawls! 13 out of 35 of Ravelry's most popular patterns of all time are small shawls or wraps. And who better to curate a collection of these trendy-yet-classic designs than the editor of Knitscene, Lisa Shroyer?

Free Spirit Shawls features 20 shawl projects that are presented along 4 themes: Color (simple colorwork), Lace (the infinite pretty possibilities achieved by simple yarnovers), Simplicity (variegated yarns and simple stitches used to create simple yet striking designs), and Texture (cables and knit-purl combinations). Technique features focus on special areas of expertise such as Shetland construction and the anatomy of semicircular shawls.

With her intimate knowledge of what knitters are hungry to make and wear, Lisa has curated a contemporary collection that will reach far beyond simple trends and will continue to inspire for years to come.

A good overview of various methods for shawl construction and many patterns which demonstrate the techniques. And most of the patterns provided I will make - I cant say that about many knitting books! A valued addition to my knitting library.
