Autumn is just around the corner and a knitters thoughts turn to shawls, wraps and ponchos. Shawls have been keeping women warm for centuries and are more than just a decorative accessesory. They are a versatile garment, a shawl can keep you warm in the winter, top off an elegant evening dress, or chase away the chill on a summer evening. It’s the ideal addition to any wardrobe—and the perfect project for both the beginner who’s tired of knitting scarves and wants to move on to something new and the advanced knitter who likes a challenge. When you search for shawl patterns you’ll find a wide range of designs to suit any style or skill level, including: Delicate lace creations that will entice lovers of intricate patterns and extra fine yarns, boldly colorful shawls that make a statement with vibrant stripes, blocks and colorwork designs, super-cozy wraps that envelop you in comfort—without sacrificing style or ready-for-evening cover-ups that sparkle with beads, metallic yarns and luxury fibers.
I have chosen to share a couple of shawls and wraps with you over the next few days, the first of which is an ‘Easy Lace Triangle Shawl’
For this i have chosen a multicoloured Mohair type yarn with a metalic thread running through it, and am using 6mm needles.
I cast on two stitches and increase every other row. I started to knit this a short while ago as you can see in the photo and hope to Show you the finished shawl and share the pattern with you tomorrow or you can leave me your email address in the box provided and i’ll send it to you.
This is how far i’ve got, it will look a lot different tomorrow!
