"A globe-trotting compilation . . . The biggest value in this book is that it spans so many cultures and styles." -- Knitters Review
Shawls are currently making a huge comeback in the fashion world, but many people do not realize that the shawl has been worn for many centuries and in many cultures. This collection of patterns and traditions features shawls from around the world. From the Himalayas to Spain, from Iceland to Japan, and from Mexico to Norway, many of the shawls featured here have been taken from examples of historic knitted shawls. Other designs have been translated into knitwear from patterns for woven or lace shawls. Included are 25 patterns as well as historical and cultural information about shawls that have been used for prayer and mourning, as bridal veils, and as christening garments. Each design is presented with a full-page colour photo, written instructions, and charts.See all Product description

an inexperienced knitter, and some that are a bit more complicated. Nothing too hard though. By and large these pattens are not too 'grannyish'.
The book is well set out and written and very usable indeed.
