Shawls, Wraps & Scarfs


Classic Elite Yarns and Sixth & Spring Publishing have teamed up to create Shawls, Wraps & Scarves.  This book features 20 ideas for shawls, wraps and scarves, each one done three different ways, which equals 60 possibilities.


The book features patterns by 17 different designers including Susan Mills, Nitza Coto, Carol Sulcoski, Linda Medina, Anastasia Blaes, Carolyn Noyes, Holli Yeoh, Brooke Nico, Jean Moss, Tonia Barry, Jacqueline Van Dillen, Jill Gutman Schoenfuss, Irina Poludnenko, Angela Tong, Cheryl Murray, Helen Bingham and Anniken Allis.

One of the great things about these ‘small’ projects is chance to learn new techniques without committing to a huge project.

Looking to learn cables? The Power Cables patterns incorporate a reversible cable to make a scarf, cowl or shawl. Using different yarns (Woodlandand Pirouette), each project has its own character.

 

How about lace? The Cream & Sugar patterns include a cowl, a rectangle wrap and a triangle shawl. Using lighter weight yarns (Pirouetteand Vail), these lace projects create great layering pieces that can be worn year round.

  

The words Fair Isle can strike fear in many knitter’s hearts. But using the Nordic Star patterns you can incorporate as little or as much as you would like.

  

Shawls, Wraps & Scarves is available in local yarns stores now. You can also purchase a copy online here. It would make a great gift for any knitter in your life, whether they are a new knitter or an advanced stitcher.
