Free-Spirit Shawls

Another week, another book on the blog. This week, it's Free-Spirit Shawls by Lisa Shroyer.

The book consists of 20 shawl patterns and is broken up into sections: Color, Lace, Simplicity & Texture. I really like the book being organized this way. You can find what you want to knit with ease! There is also a section about shawl shapes, which as a shawl designer, I enjoyed reading. There are lots of pretty shawls in the book, here are a few of my faves:

Bethe by Angela Tong may be my favorite:
Basilica:
Framework:

There are so many different types of shawls in this book, I am sure most knitters will find something they like. If a pattern involves a chart, there are no written instructions to go along with it. However, there are patterns in the book where there is no chart, so if you are not a chart-reader, there is still something in there for you too!

You can see all of the patterns for this book here.

Want my review copy? Leave a comment on this blog post between now and Sept. 10th. I will draw a random winner on the 12th (when I have the next book mention/review up on the blog). Make sure you leave your Ravelry name or something so I can find you should you win.

Happy knitting!
