"At The Crochet Project we love a good shawl, perfect for all year round wear. It needs to have beautiful drape and an interesting pattern. A shawl is a perfect blank canvas for trying a new stitch pattern or technique. They are portable, quickly achievable and can be made from relatively little yarn. In this book we share our love of shawls and show you the secrets of shaping them, tips for incorporating stitch patterns and a beautiful pattern demonstrating each shape. All the examples use just one 100g skein of 4ply yarn, making these patterns the perfect stash buster or excuse to buy a special skein. Whether you’d like to make your first shawl, learn to design your own or just understand a little more about what makes them so special, this is the book for you.Patterns are written using UK crochet terminology with US conversions given in the abbreviations section. Patterns are charted where appropriate. Schematics are provided throughout.A code to download a free pdf version of the book is included in the price. This copy is for personal use only.

"Stockinette, ribbing, cables, even the humble yarn over can instantly evoke places, times, people, conversations, all those poignant moments that we've tucked away in our memory banks. Over time, those stitches form a map of our lives.—From the prefaceIn The Yarn Whisperer: Reflections on a Life in Knitting, renowned knitter and author Clara Parkes ponders the roles knitting plays in her life via 22 captivating, poignant, and laugh-out-loud funny essays. Recounting tales of childhood and adulthood, family, friends, adventure, privacy, disappointment, love, and celebration, she hits upon the universal truths that drive knitters to create and explores the ways in which knitting can be looked at as a metaphor for so many other things. Put simply, "No matter how perfect any one sweater may be, it's only human to crave another. And another, and another."
