Judging by our poll, shawls are one of your favorite project types. And with good reason – they’re fun to knit, great to wear and an excuse to use up different yarns or colors.
Aranthera by Jen Lucas $6.50.
Asymmetric triangle. Simple lace and stockinette with a bit of texture. If you’re not into charts this is a good one – it’s all written! Given its shape it’s also one to knit with your entire skein.
Bobbles and a popcorn edging make this one not-your-everyday shawl and the DK weight works up quickly and keeps you warm. Shara knit it up with a contrast edging but you could use the same color or one just slightly different for some subtlety.
Triangle top-down with lace and a picot edge. Grab the beta while you can.
Te Atu (The Dawn) shawl by Rachel Evans. $5. 20% off that price through Dec 24th.
Another crescent shawl but this one combines a gradient with a solid. It uses use a dotted lace and a picot edging for a feminine touch.

The cowlette makes for a quick knit. Simone knit it up in two colors but one would work nicely too. Both charted and written directions you have your choice.
Side-to-side shawl work in garter with eyelet accents. Emma used a gradient by ChiaroScuro Dye Lab (the same hand-dyer used by Woolly Wormhead in her Elbert’s Cap!). A semi-solid or varied hand-dyed would work well too.
A side-to-side asymmetric shawl with garter and lace. Valentina worked up the edge with a coordinating color but you could do it all in one color or with stripes for all the garter. Lots of options!
Crescent, striped stockinette with a lace border and a picot edge.
