I have a series of posts coming, each featuring a set of my favourite patterns from Indie Design GiftALong designers. This first set is a collection of fabulous shawls. Without further ado, here we go!
First up is Amille by Emily Ross. Seriously, I’ve been drooling over this pattern for years. It’s one of the most spectacular knits I have ever seen. Maybe someday I’ll get brave enough to try it.
How cool is Big Dotty? I love the use of texture here by Libby Jonson, it really is perfection.
Bricktown by Beverly S. is one of those great projects for using contrasting variegated and solid coloured yarn.
Crossfire by Jennifer Dassau caught my eye in last year’s GAL, it’s such a great way to use colours together.
How gorgeous is D’oiro by Ines Sousa? The colours and photography are beautiful here, but the shawl itself is a stunner too.
Galcantray by Emily K Williams is another one I’ve been admiring for a while. I’m sure it would be an everyday scarf for me.
The Indulgence Wrap by Michelle Krause is a new design that I’m sure is going to be popular for a while. It is so classy and elegant.
One of four male participating designers this year, Josh Ryks has a stunner here with Greek Fire. There’s just so much going on in this shawl, I love it!
Notting Hill Gate by Toby Roxane Barna is great of using one of those beautiful skeins of handpainted yarn you couldn’t help but buy.
And here’s one that’s right up my alley, with beautiful colours and clean lines. This is Notions of Colour Shawl by Heike Campbell.
Penultimately (I really just wanted to use that word), is the Puaka Shawlette, just one of Francoise Danoy’s beautiful designs.
Finally, we have Yarden by Nancy Whitman, a gorgeous combination of colours and lace.
So that’s my wrap-up of gorgeous shawls that caught my eye from this year’s GAL. Tune in again tomorrow when I’ll cover my Favourite Colourwork Patterns of the GAL.
