The Little Book Of Shawls - Heike Gittins & Claudia Freiss
A Little Book of Shawls – Eight cosy hugs for strong women- Heike Gittins & Claudia Freiss
“A shawl on your needles or hook is the comfort food of knitting or crochet. A shawl lets you forget about the rigors of gauge and always fits its wearer, whether it ends up an inch shorter or wider than intended. Works of art can be created with a little effort and a few basic materials and of course nothing makes a better gift than a hand knitted or crochet shawl – a virtual hug to the recipient with our carefully constructed stitches.”
The shawls come in all shapes and sizes. With a mixture of knitted and crochet shawls there will be a shawl for everyone.
Conveniently wire-bound so it flips open and stays open whilst you work and contains full colour photographs and beautifully hand drawn pictures.
This is not just a book, it also contains a section on Shawology, and each shawl is dedicated to a strong woman in history.
