We welcomed a new book to our teacart this week – let’s take a peek inside Custom Shawls, by Kate Atherly and Kim McBrien Evans!
As the title suggests, Custom Shawls is a book about design, a resource that encourages knitters to create their own special shawls and gives them the tools to do so.
Custom Shawls introduces a variety of shawl shapes and stitch patterns, along with guidance on how to combine them for a finished piece that perfectly suits the yarn at hand.
Yarn itself is an important factor in shawl design, of course, and Atherly and McBrien Evans spend time discussing fiber, gauge, color, and yarn construction, showing how each of these variables affects the knit fabric.
Custom Shawls is $27.50; order online for local pickup or shipping via USPS Priority Mail!
