Shawls, Wraps, and Stoles
Shawls are practical, versatile, and ever-popular projects among knitters. Noted designer Melissa Leapman has developed an innovative technique that promises hundreds of beautiful shawl design options in Knitting Modular Shawls, Wraps, and Stoles!
Beginning with a simple triangular wedge, Leapman shows how multiple knit triangles can be joined together to create square, rectangular, trapezoidal, and semicircular shapes. Her easy and customizable technique offers knitters of all levels endless flexibility in design and yarn choices. Knitters can use their favorite yarns, from laceweight to chunky, to get their desired drape, structure, and stitch detail. Charted patterns for 185 different stitches allow readers to select their favorite embellishment for the main fabric of their shawl in a choose-your-own-adventure style of design. Colorful photographs of 20 of Leapman’s original designs illustrate the creative potential of this technique. Hardcover, 228 Pages; Storey Publishing.
