Knit and create shawls of all shapes and sizes. Aimed at shawl knitters from beginners to advanced, this book provides a 360 degree view of the shawl creation process, from planning your shape to selecting your colours to knitting skills needed.
Knitters love shawls, and this book brings together all the skills needed to design personalised and lovely shawls. Custom Shawls for the Curious and Creative Knitter by Kate Atherley & Kim McBrien Evans will equip adventurous knitters with the skills needed to knit and create shawls and wraps of all shapes and sizes, and will help them forge their own shawl-knitting paths.
Tips and tutorials address the technical aspects of shawl knitting, from shaping to adapting stitch patterns to making colour and fabric choices. The gallery of patterns using hand-spun and hand-dyed yarns provides knitters with inspiration for customising and creating their own designs. Featured yarns are a mix of classics and luxury fibres.
More than a dozen patterns illustrate the shawl knitting techniques. One third of the patterns are aimed at beginner knitters, one third teaches intermediate knitters new skills for intriguing results, and one third offers creative instruction in customising shawls for experienced knitters. Together the authors provide a 360 degree view of the shawl creation process from designing, to knitting, to the completed garment.
