Last night and tonight I only had little bits of knitting time, so I used them to do my next two mini-shawls. I am actually testing out shapes for my next design, so I was looking for something specific. They are not out of the Exploring Shawl Shapes book, but instead from the course materials from Laura Nelkin’s Craftsy class Knit Shawls 14 Ways. The shawl shapes books has a few things that are close to what I wanted, but not quite it.
The green mini is a top-down crescent, and the yellow one is a top down heart-shaped crescent. Please excuse the terrible pictures!
As always with these things, it was fun trying out the different shaping options and seeing how they develop. I may actually knit through all of these mini shawls too, while I’m at it. There are some repeats of what’s in the book, but plenty are different!
So now I have to decide which one feels more like a Florida shawl. I’m kind of leaning toward the top one, but not entirely sure. What do you think?
