Modern Crocheted Shawls & Wraps
35 stylish ways to keep warm from lacy shawls to chunky throws
This crochet book includes patterns for a gorgeous range of shawls and wraps by Laura Strutt. There are snuggly shawls to add a splash of colour to your outfit and fight the winter chill, as well as lovely delicate lacy shawls to throw over your shoulders for a wedding or a party.
You will find a range of bright and neutral palettes, as well as some unique patterns and interesting textures. Learn how to use the star stitch and popcorn stitch to add weight or try using the increasingly popular super-chunky and variegated yarns. Whether you are looking to expand your crochet skills or simply want to make something lovely to wear, Laura has got you covered. Or should we say wrapped?
