Aeria

by Linnea Ornstein

I love the colours used in this shawl, the soft, muted rainbow works beautifully. The shawl uses short rows to create the leaf shapes and stems and is knitted from tip to tip, sideways. It uses sport weight yarn, but you could easily sub 4ply/fingering weight yarn in the right colours. You could go for a more subtle look with neutral colours or go for a high contrast option to really pop.

Odyssey Shawl

by Joji Locatelli

This is, unusually, a free pattern and I just love the colours Joji has chosen for her shawl, those rich greens really call to me. Beautiful colour blocking and it looks like a very relaxing knit. Knitted with DK weight yarn and 5mm needles for a soft drape, this is a large shawl for wrapping around and maximum comfort. Odyssey is a crescent shaped shawl in 3 colors of medium-weight yarn. Medium weight means DK, or worsted, or even Aran! The good news is that you knit it up super fast.
Each color section ends with a lace band that features striking big eyelets and wavy texture.

Nightshift

by Andrea Mowry

I do love this shawl and it’s incredibly popular. It looks like a great option to bust some stash and have a lot of fun with colours. It’s slip stitch colourwork, sometimes called Mosaic, so you only work with one colour at a time. It’s triangle shaped and worked with DK/Worsted yarn.

Lost Souls Skull Shawl

by Maryetta Roy

I spotted this shawl and thought, oooh Crochet lace. How wrong was I? On closer inspection it’s skull motifs and so clever. It is crocheted with Aran yarn and a 5mm hook, so this will be quick and fun. It would make a great addition to your Halloween costumes or the perfect gift for a teen going through their Goth phase. It’s also free, did I mention that?

Perfect-Pockets Shawl

by Sonja Hood

Is it a shawl, is it a scarf? Do we care? No, because it’s got POCKETS and we love our pockets. Crocheted with Aran weight yarn using 9mm and 10mm hooks this will be super fast and make a great gift for anyone who loves a Boho look or just likes to have pockets. For the clumsy among you, me included, I think I’d end up wrapped around the door handles within five minutes of wearing it, but I still like it.

Igirigi

by BreCat Ewa Brandys

A fabulous crochet shawl for a fade set or gradient cake of yarn. I love the lacy details and strong design lines of this. It’s crocheted with a Sheepjes Whirl and a 3.75mm hook, the gradient of the sample is lovely. There is a chart and it uses US crochet terminology.

The Air Up There Shawl

by Kate Harland

I love this photo, that smile, the colours, everything about it. It really drew me in to look at the pattern. The shawl is a shallow crescent shape and knitted with fingering/4ply weight yarn.

Sundial Ruffle Shawl

by Stephanie H.

I loved the colour of this crescent shaped shawl, it uses 4py/fingering weight yarn, gradient set or cake would be awesome. Crocheted with a 3.5mm hook and with such a pretty ruffle and lacy patterning. Love it.

The Doodler

by Stephen West

A show-stopping garter stitch shawl from Stephen West. I love his wacky style and presentation, a true artist. His designs are always interesting, well explained and give you the opportunity to play with colour, texture and contast. A triumph.

Fleur

by Espace Tricot

Another free pattern and the peachy, warm and light colours really spoke to me. I love the bobble details and the chance to mess around with yarn and leftovers if you wanted. Meditative knit stitch is interrupted by just four rows of bobbly texture to achieve a shawl that delivers high impact flare with minimal effort. La Bien Aimee Merino DK creates lovely drape while Cosy Posy Yarn Co. Fluff adds light, fuzzy contrast.

Falling blossoms shawl

by Ana D

This beautiful lacy shawl uses sock yarn, approx 450yds so more than the average skein but enough to use up leftovers or let you play with colour for the various sections. Crocheted with a 3.5mm hook it’ll be light, airy and beautiful. The asymmetic shape appeals to be and makes for a fun shawl to wear and style.

Confundo

by Barbara Benson

I absolutely love Barbara Benson and her patterns are fabulous. I do really want to knit this shawl which uses slip stitch mosaic knitting to create gorgeous colour patterns very, very easily. It’s so easy, you’ll think it’s cheating. Worked in DK weight yarn, it’ll be a quick knit and a fun way to bust some stash.

Loveland Shawl

by Toni Lipsey

I know, it looks like it’s knitted but honestly, it’s Tunisian crochet and I love, love, love it. DK yarn is crocheted with a 6.5mm hook to mimic knitting in all it’s glory. I am blown away by this, who knew? It uses Tunisian Knit stitch and features video tutorials to show you the other stitches which create the lace effects. Genius.

Cowboys and Angels

by Isabell Kraemer

Thanks goodness it’s not Cowboys and Aliens which ranks high on the list of worst films ever. I was drawn to the colour of the shawl, which is perfect for me. But also, the lace and texture details. it is a fun knit, enough to keep you interested but not so taxing that you can’t watch a bit of TV at the same time, just avoid anything with subtitles. Knitted with DK yarn and 4.5mm needles for a nice drape but not too much. I think the trellis stitch pattern combined with garter and bobbles is a winner for me.

Wild Sunset Shawl

by Cecilia Losada

I love the styling of this one, the beach, the neutral colour and dreamy lace. It’s crocheted with DK yarn and a 4mm hook, it would look good in a gradient but I like the simplicity of one colour to show off the lace patterning. It’s triangle shaped, worked bottom up to maximize the size and use of your yarn, you can go big or small on this one.

Shawl Patterns I Love August 2020 12

Briola

by Katrin Schubert

I couldn’t look at shawls and not include a bit of brioche for you. This crescent shaped shawl uses four colours of yarn so perfect for a fancy set or busting some stash to get the colours that suit you. The design features stripes of lace with two colour brioche in between. It’s a large shawl but worth the time involved. 4ply/fingering weight yarn on 3.5mm needles.

Hotel of Bees Shawl

by Christina Hadderingh

A lovely honeycomb/bee themed shawl and a great way to use up stash. It uses sport weight yarn but fingering would do, 4.5mm and 5mm hooks for maximum drape and a light, airy fabric. The design is packed with fun stitches, is asymmetric, uses filet crochet, surface crochet, front post stitches, stripes and lots of texture. Gorgeous!

Cozy Winter

by Melanie Mielinger

Cables, lace, aran weight yarn and knitted on 6mm needles for speed, airyness and amazing drape. Wow.

Puffalicious Shawl

by Viktoria Gogolak

Perfect for cakes, not that type of cake, Aran weight yarn cakes! It’s charted and uses Aran yarn with a 5.5mm hook. I love the colours in the photo, the yellow really pops against that grey.

Shawl Patterns I Love August 2020 16

Cathedral Grove

by Rosemary (Romi) Hill

This stunning shawl uses light sport or fingering/4ply yarn but you’ll need two 100g skeins. Worked top down and flat with colourwork, lace, texture and stripes. Look at that border, it’s fabulous

History of Trees Shawl

by Christina Hadderingh

Greens, yellow, texture, trees and lots of fun. I really like this asymmetric shawl. Each section is inspired by trees, the pattern is charted and written. There are photo tutorials for the various stitch patterns and lots of help. It is crocheted with sport weight yarn and a 4mm hook

French Cancan

by Mademoiselle C

This little beauty takes a garter stitch knitted shawl to the next level with a knitted-on border added on. the cables and lace add interest and texture to the piece. It’s a classic. DK yarn, 4.5mm needles make for a squishy, soft shawl.

Shawl Patterns I Love August 2020 19

Marina

by Harlee Wentworth

The Marina Wrap is a light and airy shawl pattern that uses only one ball of Red Heart It’s A Wrap Rainbow Yarn. The lacy stitches and gentle crescent shape of this shawl show off the yarn beautifully. UK knitters might want to try a DK weight yarn cake or something like Stylecraft Cabaret.

Modern Hygge Shawl

by Grace Akhrem

Using DK and Lace yarns held together, this soft, buttery shawl is sure to wrap you up warm and cozy. Grace used 4.5mm needles at a gauge/tension of 18×24 before blocking, so it will grow from that size.

Be as Water – Mindy Dykman aka Ravenknits – 6 patterns from Elements of Memory

Be as Water – Mindy Dykman aka Ravenknits – 6 patterns from Elements of Memory

Introducing Be As Water by Mindy Dykman aka Ravenknits

Be As Water Shawl

Be As Water Shawl

I’m a big fan of Mindy Dykman, aka Ravenknits and love her intricate patterns, often inspired by nature or the works of JRR Tolkein.

Mindy’s latest release is being published today (Pi day for those in the know) and is called Be as Water, which is part of a collection of patterns called Elements of Memory.

The ebook of six patterns does represent a HUGE saving, but if you prefer there is a discount code for 20% off the individual pattern.

Save 20% off the price of Be As Water using the code BeAsWater in your Ravelry shopping cart.  Offer good until 11:59pm EST Tuesday March 19th.

I love the beading and lace details and knitted with fine yarn, it’ll be as light as a feather.

I asked Ravenknits about her design inspiration, here’s what she had to say

“Growing up in the Fraser Delta of British Columbia, with parents who attended UBC, I remember spending many days in the Nitobe Memorial Gardens.

These gardens on the UBC campus are considered to be amongst the most authentic Japanese gardens outside of Japan itself.

The deliberate plantings and symbolic statuary of the gardens are a huge part of the artistic sensibilities I have carried with me since childhood, and I wanted in some way to honour that debt of influence.

It is for this reason that, when I started contemplating the shape with which to represent the traditional elements as a shawl series, I turned to the structure of the gorinto.

Built in towers of five defining shapes, the gorinto represents elements of stability and of change, of permanence and impermanence, of the known and of the unknowable.

The spherical second level of the gorinto represents Water. Be As Water is a lace weight circular pi shawl worked from the center out.

It is worked in concentric circles with a stocking stitch ring between each ring of lace motifs.

The first two lace rings of the Be As Water Shawl use the traditional Old Shale motif.

The third and fifth lace rings of the Be As Water Shawl use a stitch that represents the word “rain,” the return of water from sea to land.

The fourth lace ring of the Be As Water Shawl uses a Japanese stitch which is an interesting variation of the same concepts found in Old Shale, suggesting that like water, the ideas that are expressible within knitting stitches are similar around the world.”

Let’s have another look at this stunning shawl by Ravenknits, Be As Water

Be As Water shawl by Mindy Dykman Ravenknits

 

I love the delicate beads and variety of lace patterns included in this intricate but beautiful design.  It’ll be an enjoyable knit and I could have a lot of fun choosing beads to go with the yarn.

Elements of Memory is a subscription ebook which will contain a collection of 6 shawl patterns of different shapes in various yarn weights. Four of the six patterns will represent the classical elements, with a fifth pattern representing the metaphysical concept of spirit, and the sixth pattern representing the unification of the previous five concepts.

The one by Marcela Chang

I’ve shown a close up of this one, it’d be fabulous for all the trendy speckled yarns in the shops and available from Indie Dyers at the moment and I love the pretty stitch pattern,  isn’t it lovely?   Click on the name of the pattern or on the image to visit the page.     Marcela used 3ply/light fingering yarn but I think I’d use 4ply/fingering weight from my stash, this really is a beautiful shawl and in these colours, would be perfect for Summer.

Ultravioleta by Lena Fedetova

This one is crochet, but it’s hard to tell from the photo and I just love purple, so how could I resist this?   The shawl features a gorgeous zigzig pattern, achieved with chains, shells and simple stitches, nothing too taxing and it’s easy to see if you’ve gone wrong very quickly.

Happy Stitches Shawl by Dawn Ortega

I’ve included this one, partly because I love the colours and simplicity of this one, great for a shawl beginner but also because it’s a good one for those self striping yarns you don’t know what do with, or using up scrap yarn and making a magic yarn ball.

Whitewater Wrap by Amy van de Laar

I love Amy’s designs and have made her Beeswax Hat in a previous Gift Along, but this shawl, inspired by a waterfall near to Amy’s home, really stands out for me.    It has lace, angles, texture and a real sense of movement.

Simplicity is Key by Red and the Wolf Designs

This is a simple and quick knit, great way to use up stash, play with colour and get used to shaping a shawl.   It is easy, but it’s not boring, a great knit for tv watching where you want to keep up with the plot and not lose your place in your knitting.

Rainbows! In Space! by Carolyn Macpherson

I had to include a rainbow somewhere and as a Sci Fi fan, to have rainbows in space was a fab combo.   I love the twinkly stars and the rainbow colours.    I think I’ll make this one with an Autumn coloured rainbow and an inky purple for the starry sky.
