New from local designer Sylvia McFadden of Softsweater Knits comes this amazing collection of knitted shawls. Part pattern book and part coffee-table quality look book, this would be a fantastic gift for any knitter on your list.
There are six shawl patterns in the book, including the extremely popular Waiting for Rain shawl. It also includes instructions on how to design your own short row shawl, complete with blank charts for charting out the lace that you want to incorporate into your design.
Shawl Joy is 100% Canadian Made. Syliva, who lives in Vancouver, designed, knit and photographed the shawls, and wrote the book. Her models are all from BC, and the book was printed in Burnaby on 100% recycled paper, using carbon neutral practices.
