I KNOW. But I really can’t get enough of fringed shawls these days. Especially since they’re sort of the perfect transitional piece as we head into fall — great now on their own (indoors or out), and later over a jacket. Some good ’uns:
– Oana Shawl designed by Kirsten Kapur (the incredible cocoa-brown version shown here was knitted by G-Knits)
– Sidewalk Shawl (crochet) designed by Kimberly K. McAlindin
– Beeton Shawl designed by Derya Davenport of Laylock, where she posted the “haunting tale” of this shawl’s fruition
I also love CarmineZuigiber’s sunny yellow shawl, which is a pattern called Nancy & Judy with fringe added.
Man, I love a shawl. I’ve made many- none for me. Still want to make this shawl/scarf thing: http://media-cache-ec5.pinterest.com/upload/234890936784621819_zGOmrB0f_f.jpg
Me too, MJ. I know it’s just i-cord and garter to your heart’s content, but in case anyone wants specifics, Margaux Hufnagel (tentenknits) did a pattern for this one: http://www.tentenknits.com/tentenknits/2012/02/sutro-wrap.html
You are so right — fringed shawls are perfect for the fall and fun to knit, too!
I have that sidewalk shawl on my ravelry queue, maybe I can get around to it soon.
Well, now that I’ve read the tale of the Beeton shawl I just HAD to add it to my queue.
Thanks for the link.
Glad you all are liking them.
I just corrected the link on that sunny yellow shawl — should have gone here: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/CarmineZuigiber/nancy–judy-2
Sorry about that!
