Vogue Knitting Shawls & Wraps

Vogue Knitting Shawls & Wraps  $31.95
This book has spring shawl-spiration is spades! It consists of 40 shawl & wrap patterns previously published in Vogue Knitting magazine over the last 10 (or more) years. As you'd expect, there is lots of lace, some easy and some more involved. But it is a real mix of style so there are lots of things in it for everyone. There are bulky yarns, colour work, cables, big wraps, little wraps, high fashion stuff, traditional looks, and lots of women on windswept beaches. Shawls and wraps are one of those ubiquitous projects because you ALWAYS need one to wear to that fancy event and they are such a perfect gift because they always fit and look very impressive.

Some of my particular favourites (keeping in mind that I am not a lacy knitter):
