Sock-Yarn Accessories - The Shawls

Sock-Yarn Accessories starts shipping later this week (hooray!) so I thought I would take the next week or two to chat about some of the patterns.

The book contains 20 patterns - the most patterns I've ever had in one book. There's lots of variety too - shawls, scarves, mittens, hats, socks, and more. Finally, a sock yarn book from me with actual socks!

Today I'm starting with the shawls. First up, it's Adorn:
You know how I love a good triangle shawl! The sample shown here in the book uses just one skein of Artisan Sock from Hazel Knits, but the pattern includes notes on how to make it bigger with a second skein.

Then there's Lake Delton, one of my favorite patterns in the book:
Lake Delton is a top-down crescent shawl with a knitted-on border. The body of the shawl uses double yarn overs to make it extra lacy! I named the shawl after Lake Delton, Wisconsin, where my family has been vacationing for decades. We always stay at a resort right on the lake - it's one of my favorite places ever. Here's me with the family in Lake Delton last year. Such a great time!


There is another shawl in the book, but it's part of a matching accessories set. More on those later.

I really hope you enjoy Sock-Yarn Accessories!
