That’s right, knitters! Surprise! Another pattern- and it’s one I’m super proud of!
Introducing: The Laura Shawl!It’s a gorgeous (if I say so myself) cabled wrap, almost six feet long and two feet wide. It looks great wrapped around your shoulders, or cozied up under your chin. And, frankly, it’s big enough to act as a lap blanket when you go out to eat, and they set you too close to a drafty window.
The Laura Shawl is knit in gorgeous tweedy wool that works great with cables. Four wide panels of complex cables are interspersed with some knit/purl texture, and the whole bad boy is finished with thick fringe on either end, just to make it feel extra-luxurious.
The best part? It’s part of another beautiful book from Knit Picks, the Woodsmoke Cable Collection.This book is absolutely breathtaking. It’s chock full of 16 lushly cabled patterns- sweaters, blankets, scarves and hats.
I mean, look at these:Really, I want to work up all of these for myself. (Or maybe have someone else do it so I don’t have to wait?)What’s that? You want a copy? Buy yourself a copy here!
