Small shawls

I know I'm not the only one preoccupied with small shawls at the moment, not by far. The appearance of Ishbel seemed to open the floodgates, and now I'm seeing lots and lots of beautiful little shawls on Ravelry -- lots and lots of patterns that use about a skein of sock yarn. I was gathering links together for myself and thought I'd share.

These patterns are free:

- Fizzi (Ravelry link only)
- Multnomah (Rav link)
- Lazy Day Lace Shawl (Rav link)
- Travelling Woman (Rav link)
- Weaver's Wool Mini Shawl (Rav link)
- [added 11/19] Leaf Peeper Bandit (Rav link)

These ones cost some money:

- Aestlight Shawl (Rav link)
- Antonia Shawlette/Capelet (Rav link)
- Butterfly Forest Shawl (Rav link)
- Centrique (Rav link)
- Damson (Rav link)
- Hayworth Shawlette (Rav link)
- Herbivore (Rav link)
- Little Colonnade (Rav link only)
- Milkweed Shawl (Rav link)
- Simple Things (Rav link)
- Sunbird (Ravelry link only)
- Wast Side Shawl (Rav link)

So many shawls! All I want to knit these days is shawls. These ones, big intricate lacy ones, you name it. (They don't have to fit, for one thing.)

By the way, new Twist Collective today! I haven't even looked yet...

Such a great list!

I'm excited about the Twist Collective today too. I had a quick look already. Lots of neat ideas.

Carolyn said...

i just made the Simple Things shawl and I love it!!! :)

Katie M. said...

Thanks for all of the links! Time to get knitting, obviously.

Two Cables and a Frapp said...

Thanks for the links. They are all very nice.

yoel said...

Thanks for the great list! I queued all the ones that weren't already queued :)

Becky Holmes said...

Thanks for this very useful little list. I too am obsessed with these, though so far I've only made Ishbel.

Kirsten said...

I'm so glad you made this list. I had a similar list (albeit a shorter one) of shawlettes using 440 yds or less. I'm obsessed, too. Can you tell?

Siena said...

Thanks for the list! I have added some of them to my favourites. I never thought of myself as a shawl person, but now I love knitting them!

I love knitting shawls, but I don't have any shawl pins so sometimes wearing them is a little more challenging. I've made Ishbel and it does come out wonderfully. The large size required that I dip into the bare beginnings of a second skein of sock yarn to finish off.

J Leona said...

Thanks for sharing, there is a lot of good ideas especially with christmas right around the corner!

Aaaahahaahaha forgive me I sinned !!!!!!! I copied your list to share it with my friends, I couldn't resist !!!!!!

(seriously, if you're upset, please let me know and I remove it right away)

I'm with you - I want to knit them all! Thanks for the tip on the new Twist Collective. I'm going to go check it out now.

I just finished my second Herbivore today; one for me and one for a Christmas present. I have the yarn in my knitting bag for a third one (also Christmas present). It's a great pattern - it's reasonably simple (I did a lot of evening TV and knitting with this one), AND the result is lovely.

Carrie said...

ooh, so many good little shawls! thanks for the list - I hadn't seen some of those. I'm at the point now where I never knit socks with my sock yarn - I just make shawls. :)

Thanks so much for your list of shawl patterns. Inspired by your knitting and your blog~ I bought some lovely sock yarn today for a small shawl to keep me warm this winter (and the yarn is warm colored too!) Best, Margaret

Thanks for posting this! Especially the Lazy Day one - I hadn't seen it before, and now I can't wait to make it.
