Crochet your own shawls, wraps, capelets and throws from this collection of stylish patterns Shawls, wraps and throws are a simple yet colourful way to liven up your wardrobe or home - they are comforting and cosy, but they can also be stylish and delicate. Modern Crocheted Shawls and Wraps has 35 patterns ranging from a simple, slip-on crochet wrap, to a large open-work shawl with tassels, and an emerald-green throw with contrasting borders. There are lace-patterned shawls to drape around your shoulders at a party, or capelets to add a layer of warmth to your outfit on chilly days. Granny hexagons and stars are used to make giant rectangular wraps and throws, while triangle stitch and puff stitch add texture and weight. There's even a 'stash-buster' pattern with a mix-and-match border designed to use up your colourful leftover yarns. Many of the shawls would make excellent gifts - particularly as 'prayer shawls' - and of course, one size fits all! Following on from Modern Granny Square Crochet and More, this latest collection from Laura Strutt features her usual up-to-date style and modern pallette of brights, variegated yarns, and neutrals, while many of the patterns use the increasingly popular super-chunky and variegated yarns.
