Modern Crocheted Shawls & Wraps
Crochet your own shawls, wraps, capelets, and afghans from this collection of stylish patterns
Shawls, wraps, and afghans are a simple yet colorful way to liven up your wardrobe or home—they are comforting and cozy, 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 afghan 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 afghans, 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 colorful leftover yarns. Many of the shawls would make excellent gifts—particularly as "prayer shawls"—and of course, one size fits all!
