4.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased August 13, 2010
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I knit shawls almost exclusively since my knitting is for charity and a shawl fits anyone. I really enjoyed the book because none of the patterns were particularly difficult but all held my attention. Some were more lacy than others but all were in DK, worsted or bulky weight yarn which is what most people have on hand. The one thing I would have liked to have seen is charting in addition to written instructions. It took forever to get used to charted instructions but now I like them better and I think the wording for the written instructions could have been a little clearer but overall it a good book and I'd buy it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book August 17, 2010
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
This is a very good book. I like the size as it fits easily in my knitting bag. I also like the fact that it is spiral bound as it stays open to the page I am using. There is a variety of difficulty of patterns and the patterns are beautiful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some good stuff in here! June 9, 2011
By Line
Format:Spiral-bound
I like most of the shawls in this "book" a couple of them are very pretty and you can make them with different yarn to get different effect. It's also easy to follow directions. Everything is written down so there is no diagrams here. I used this book when I was new to knitting and it gave me confidence to finishing and making beautiful projects. There are 15 shawls and wraps in the book, I changes a lot of the yarns because I didn't like the look of them in the book. So in my case I had to look beyond the yarns.. I think its worth 10 bucks especially if you're not good with diagrams (yet!) but still wants to knit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prayer shawls for loved ones February 1, 2015
By Susan
Format:Spiral-bound
This is a tough review for me to write. Two of the shawls in this book - "Sunny Days ahead" and "Because I care" I knit for a friend and sister. Unfortunately, I got both of them back after they passed away. My sister has been gone 3 1/2 years and I just now opened the bag of knitted hats and shawls that I had made her and found one from this book. Yeah, I cried like a baby (and that's why I hadn't opened the bag before; I knew I would)... ;-( The "Because I care" shawl is a rectangle and I put it on my dresser as a table runner; the "Sunny Days ahead" shawl I have hanging over a chair.

Anyway, this book has 15 shawl patterns and over half of them I like (most books may have one or two). It's a small book that you could easily carry in your knitting bag and being spiral bound is really a nice plus so you can lay the book flat without damaging the pages. The patterns are not difficult, even though most of them list the skill level as "intermediate". The shawls make a great gift for someone going through a tough time, or even for someone who just likes shawls.

Amazon has only been showing one photo, so I'm posting one of the "Sunny Days ahead" shawl in memory of my friend and sister;
"Because I care". :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Prayer Shawl Patterns September 4, 2010
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I was interested in this book because it said "Knit" patterns for prayer shawls. At first I was disappointed because I don't use the fine yarns that some of the shawls were knit with. But as I took more time to look at the book there are a lot of patterns that I can use with bulky yarn. Some of the shawls are so pretty and lacey, they would make a wonderful gift. I'm glad to have this book in my library to refer to.

what a wonderful collection of knitted shawls. This is a good collection of varied-shaped shawls. The one featured on the cover is my favorite and I've knitted this several times. Many more projects on the way.
