1. Maan by Natasja Hornby

Maan is not for the faint at heart. She is not a flimsy, barely there layering piece, but a wrap with a lot of character, presence, and substance. She stands out in the crowd and will add something extra to any outfit while keeping you warm and cozy. She is an eye-catcher, but also your shield.

Knitting this wrap is a treat for the adventurous intermediate to experienced knitter. Because of the variety of stitch patterns and techniques, there’s no room for boredom and there’s just enough repetition to get a sense of rhythm and structure.

Featured Yarn:

Lienen Los by Schoppel

This pattern is available for €4.85 EUR.

2. Shifting Dunes Shawl by Andrea Hilton

Shifting Dunes is a crescent shaped shawl that starts off by casting on twelve stitches. The stitch pattern creates a textured landscape that reminds me of the sand dune ecosystem near my home in Humboldt County, California. The dunes never look quite the same two days in a row.

The technique used for this shawl comes from the amazing book, Dimensional Tuck Knitting by Tracy Purtscher called “Left Right Tuck Together on Right Side,” or LRTT. There is a free video tutorial available on YouTube here to demonstrate this technique, so you do not need to buy the book. However, the book is one of my favorites, and you might enjoy it as well.

Aside from the pairing and tuck rows, the pattern is basically stockinette knitting.

This shawl is knit in a super soft and squishy worsted weight yarn (Sueño Worsted by HiKoo®). Due to the stitch pattern, a solid or semi-color wool is recommended for yarn substitutions. Professional instructions include measurements in English and metric. The pattern is written with row by row instructions.

4. Saturday Morning Shawl by Ivy Lucille Designs
I have a meeting every Saturday morning and one day while running late I grabbed a ball, needles and ran out the door. While in the meeting I was goofing around with my yarn and came up with this pattern. It is super fun, perfect for watching tv or listening to a book, it is a great project when your head can not be focused on your knitting.
