As a reader, wanna-be author, and daughter of a librarian, I have always loved books. So I'm beyond thrilled to actually be in one myself!
Weekend Wraps is the third collaboration between Cecily Glowik MacDonald and Melissa LeBarre (following Weekend Hats and New England Knits) and features 18 quick-knit shawls, cowls, scarves and shrugs from 15 designers. The book is due out in August, but is now available for pre-order from Amazon or your local bookstore or yarn shop.
The book focuses on accessories knit in worsted weight or heavier yarn, that result in beautiful knits that take only a little time but are big on style. My contribution to the collection is the Fireside Shawl.
The Fireside Shawl is generously-sized and features triangles upon triangles upon triangles. Garter stitch borders and a knit-stitch heavy pattern means that purling is limited. A easily memorizable repeat and worsted weight yarn (shown here in Spud & Chloe Sweater) make for a quick and cozy knit.
The book also includes designs by Amy Christoffers, Angela Tong, Bristol Ivy, Carrie Bostick Hoge, Cecily Glowik MacDonald, Emma Welford, Jocelyn Tunney, Kate Gagnon Osborn, Kristen TenDyke, Leila Raabe, Melissa LeBarre, Rachel Stecker, Tanis Gray and Thea Coleman.
You can check out all the designs and queue up your favorites on Ravelry.
