Top 3 knit wraps to beat the chill
Nature changing colours and preparing for its winter sleep. Biting wind rustling up the leaves that are gathering on the ground… With the weather turning colder and the nights growing longer, we need something cosy to beat the chill. New boots and warm coats. And lots of snuggly big shawls to wear on our forest walks and on the way to the office.
I picked our 3 favourite wraps for the season to help you choose your next project. So, brew a big pot of your favourite tea and cast on for one or two or all three and stay all warm and toasty.
Latest addition to 2017 Woolenberry Shawl Club, Malva is autumn in a shawl. Knitted with sport weight yarn in a beautiful all-over texture and wavy lace, this shawl is sure to keep the cold away. And it’s just the thing to have on your needles when you’re craving for a cosy and comforting project.
Garter stitch, seed stitch and fishnet lace in two contrasting colours make Moon Dust a simple and relaxing knit. Depending on your colour combo this open and lofty wrap can be a timeless wardrobe staple or a wildly bold statement piece. The size of this shawl can be easily adjusted, so you can make this one as big as you like.
Birch Bark is a beautiful triangle shawl where eyelets gather to play. An entertaining knit from cast on to bind off, this shawl is so addictive you won’t want to put it down. The modern simplicity of the shawl makes it a true wardrobe staple, and a pattern you’ll want to return to again and again.
