Five-time author Jen Lucas returns with a dozen lacy shawls to knit three ways: as wedges, crescents, and half-circles. With the top-down method, knitters cast on just two or three stitches and watch their shawl grow row by row. Both charted and written instructions are included for each shawl, so knitters can choose their favorite way to follow each pattern. Jen also inspires knitters to unleash the designer within by providing four templates and 18 stitch patterns to mix and match in mesmerizing one-of-a-kind shawls. Beautiful outdoor photography features each shawl in a nature setting and on a model, so readers can accurately judge sizes and see options for wearing each shawl. From richly textured stitches that pop to airy, romantic designs that call for a special occasion, these exquisite shawls will capture knitters’ hearts.
