It’s not possible to have too many shawls, right? Sometimes it seems that despite the number of them I’ve made, I never seem to have one handy! Sherilyn from Whimsical Little Knits 3 is one of our favourites, with each of us in the studio having made at least two. I still dream about the version Bex made as part of a KAL we had on Ravelry. (The helpful posts and links can still be found here, if you’re planning to knit one.)
I picked just a few for this week’s post, but there are so many wonderful versions.
This version by mitumame is knit up in another great yarn choice, Jamieson & Smith 2 ply Lace Weight, perfect for a crisp and cosy shawl.
A freshly blocked shawl is such a lovely thing! This beautiful Sherilyn was knit by Cassiopia.
This gorgeous red version by AlwaysAutumn caught my eye straight away. And then when I realised it was knit in her own handspun it seemed really wrong not to show the sweet alpacas and their fibre that helped to make it.
This Sherilyn pictured in the Portuguese sunset is simply stunning, and was knit by malhaderia.
