When I embarked on my roundup last week, it was going to be spring wraps (or shoulderwear, as I like to call it) — scarves, cowls and shawls. But I pulled too many good things to fit into one post. So here’s part two, the shawls!
1. Brisha by Cecily Glowik MacDonald, garter shawlette with a geometric lace border
2. Haiku Crochet Shawl by Rebecca Velasquez, previously noted, I know, but I’m just nuts about it
3. Imagine When by Joji Locatelli, asymmetic garter stitch with eyelets
4. Meadowgold by Romi Hill, pretty yet modern lace (See also: Sorority Shawl)
5. Spring Etude Shawl by Yuliya Tkacheva, well-done Tunisian crochet, be still my heart!
6. Qinnitan by Melanie Berg, who doesn’t love simple stripes?
7. Springtime Bandit by Kate Gagnon Osborn, a chunkier spot of lace (free pattern) (See also: Conifer)
8. Carnica by Robin Melanson, nice textured square with a not-too decorative border
In case you missed it: Pretty spring scarves: Or, what to knit for Mother’s Day
I just cast on Sandness by Gundrun Johnston
I’ve knit it once before as a gift for my mama, but now I am knitting one for me this time using crochet thread.
I started Hrim by Bristol Ivy last weekend, and it is a thing of beauty-love it!
Springtime Bandit catches my eye. Probably because of the color. I’ve been in love with anything bright pink for a couple of years now.
(Interesting how the floral pattern on the jacket in 7 looks like the wallpaper in 8.)
DANG! What a great post to wake up to! Can I start them all at once?! ;)
Beautiful. Every one of them.
I WISH I enjoyed wearing shawls so I liked making them but the truth is, I’m totally a sweater girl.
I’m totally a sweater girl too. I use shawls to, occasionally, cover my chilly legs when I am wearing a shorter skirt.
I don’t know what I love more – that Haiku shawl or her tattoos. :)
ha! i finally started Haiku after wanting to make it since i first saw it. i nearly had to hook it in the same pale dove grey, but mine is Nasturtium instead.
I love Them!!
