This showed up in my mailbox last week:
A review copy of Weekend Wraps: 18 Quick Knit Cowls, Scarves & Shawls by
As the title says, there are 18 patterns in the book — for cowls, scarves, and shawls. And they are all knit from worsted or heavier yarns. You can see all the patterns on Ravelry, here.
This is the Bias Cable and Lace Stole by Leila Raabe. The sample is knit from Brooklyn Tweed Quarry, a bulky weight wool. This would work up nice and fast!
This is the Gansey Shawl by Kate Gagnon Osborn, knit from The Fibre Co.’s Cumbria worsted weight yarn. I love all things gansey, and this shawl has a lovely textured all-over pattern.
And this is the Wantastiquet Cowl by Rachel Stecker. It is knit from Frabjous Fibers March Hare yarn, a worsted weight merino wool. I love the strong main cable and the cabled edges.
As I said, there’s a total of eighteen patterns — something for everyone. You can whip out something for yourself, or start knitting up some pretty spectacular holiday gifts!
Who’d like my review copy?
