This author, while promoting a new book, is expounding upon the virtues of different ‘new’ shawl patterns. This article mentions everything that I have a hard time with when it comes to shawls. The way shawls slip off, they way that they involve a ton of yarn overs, the fussy look, the awkward way that they fit, and so much more.
This article shows five different patterns and explains how each pattern ‘solves’ one or more of the problems mentioned. They look really neat and certainly make me want to consider the book for my libraries collection.
