Versatile, timeless, and exquisite describe the five beautiful shawls in this project book. Made using size-three thread, the Celtic Nature Shawl has round motifs worked seamlessly together, giving the impression of lacy detail workyet it’s easy to make. The Alborada Shawl uses a fine-weight cotton yarn and is made of pineapple shapes that create a sophisticated lace effect. Random placement of different motifs make for a beautiful edge for the Art Decoinspired shawl that uses a DK-weight yarn. The Galician Sea Shawl is sea shell and ocean inspired. Worked from the top down and using a lightweight yarn, two separate sections are pieced together at a center spine and finished with a beautiful edging. The Voloreta Stole, using a ripple stitch and superfine-weight mohair yarn, is an exquisite soft and airy stole. Big enough to wear around the shoulders and cozy enough to wear as a winter scarf, it is trimmed with unique crocheted balls that dangle. For those with beginner and intermediate skills, these shawls will add that extra touch to the most basic wardrobe.
