As I said before, I have been trying to catch up my knitting skills with my crochet skills. I did learn to knit first but once I started to crochet I kind of dropped it, as I find it a bit harder. Since I have a deep love for shawls, I decided a knitting book of shawls would really be a great way to get me motivated to knit more.
I headed over to Leisure Arts where I found Knit Prayer Shawls which has 15 awesome patterns. I absolutely love the lacy look and the way these shawls drape. There are a few marked easy, which I will have to start with until I get my knitting legs again and then the rest are marked intermediate.
The lovely lace you see on the cover is called Sunny Days Ahead and is an intermediate pattern that is on my list for as soon as I feel ready to jump to that level. It is a simple beautiful pattern that I would love to make for a dear friend.
This book has wonderful written instructions that are easy to follow and great illustrative pictures, as well as pictures of the finished projects so that you get a great idea of what they work up to look like.
Are you a knitter and a crocheter? Have you ever made a prayer shawl?
