Shawls we’re ”yarning” for
Shawls are a staple for every knitter – great for gifts, and great to make for ourselves! We absolutely love these shawls, created by the LoveKnitting independent designers!
We love this garter stitch triangle shawl – it really showcases how nice garter stitch can look in an accessory, and the trim finishes the shawl with a classic edging. For this shawl, we love Drops Fabel 4 ply yarn – a super soft, superwash blend that will knock your socks off! We recommend shades Off White Beige (800), Grey (200), and Rust (110) to recreate the shawl in the image, but click below to view all available shades!
This shawl is practical, funky, and fresh – with wedges of lace mesh in between stripes of garter stitch, you can’t go wrong with this shawl! We absolutely adore Lana Grossa Cool Wool Baby, a 100% wool yarn that is available in an array of bright, bold shades. Check out shades 243 (Navy blue), 208 (Light blue), and 237 (Tangerine) to complete this project!
This elegant shawl is a stunning showstopper with delicate lace and subtle beading. The entire shawl is created using only the knit stitch! For this pattern, you could use any shade of Malabrigo Sock – we are obsessed with Playa (871), Caribeno (474), and Velvet Grapes (204)!
We love this slipped stitch shawl, complete with lace edging! The garter stitch stripes and structured design make for a funky fresh shawl design that would complement any wardrobe. For this pattern, Debbie Bliss Cashmerino is a fabulous choice! Available in an unbelievable shade palette, to recreate the shawl pictured you would use Duck Egg (026) and Terracotta (085)!
We can’t get enough of this contemporary slipped stitch shawl by Stephen West! This top down design features cutouts for a high fashion look that can also be a functional addition when the shawl is worn as a scarf, to secure one side of the shawl. For this pattern, we recommend Rowan Finest in shades Glee (070), Rare (059), and Lure (071), as seen here!
