This book was inspired by all the mini-skein sets that were popping up at yarn festivals the authors visited.
The patterns work well whether you want to invest in mini skein sets or if you want to use up small amounts of yarn left over from other projects that is just too nice to not use (sock knitters will identify with this problem in particular), with each pattern using either a 100g pack of 4ply mini skeins or a pack of mini skeins and an additional 100g of 4ply yarn.
In this book the authors Joanne Scrace and Kat Goldin share their love of shawls with five new designs and show you the secrets of shaping them.
Patterns are written using UK crochet terminology with US conversions given in the abbreviations section. Patterns are charted where appropriate. Schematics are provided throughout.
