Spin-Off Presents: 7 Handspun Shawls to Knit, Crochet, and Weave eBook
Knit, Crochet and Weave Shawls from Handspun Yarn!
Shawls are an absolute must for any woman’s wardrobe. They add warmth, beauty, elegance, and color to any outfit without adding bulk (like a jacket might). The beauty of a handspun shawl is that if it turns out your grist or gauge is slightly off, your shawl will likely still fit! Plus, spinning yarn for a shawl project can be very easy. Shawl construction typically starts from the point and goes out meaning you can work until the shawl is large enough or you run out of yarn. You don’t have to spin a specific amount of yarn.
They are also perfect projects to experiment with a new fiber type or try out new techniques such as lace knitting. And yet, shawls aren’t just beginner projects—they can be simple or complex, fast or labor-intensive. Shawls can be anything you want them to be: from purely functional to incredibly expressive, easy to challenging, loudly colorful to subtly neutral.
Here are seven handspun shawls taken from past issues of Spin-Off magazine, to get your spinning wheel purring and your knitting needles, crochet hooks, or weaving loom clicking.
