A favorite and easy thing to do during those cold winter months is sit next to the fireplace, swaddled in a cozy crochet afghan, watching the blaze of fire as you become mesmerized. What can make that extra special is if you cozy up with a handmade crochet afghan and a loved one. In Modern Crocheted Shawls & Wraps you'll find 35 stylish ways to keep warm from lacy shawls to chunky afghans.

From shawls to wraps, and from afghans to capelets, you'll find many fashionable patterns in this collection of designs. Luckily crochet works up quickly, which makes larger projects achievable in a shorter period of time. Each of the crochet patterns is beautiful in their bright, painted and variegated yarns, as well as cool neutrals. These are suggested yarns, but you can easily use your favorites, instead.

Wearing a crochet shawl can liven up your wardrobe and complete your look in an instant. Shawls and wraps are also a great way to practice different techniques, stitch patterns, and even constructions. The beginning of this book goes over tips and tricks like preparing you for repeated motifs, using multiple shades of yarn and it even suggests adding locking stitch markers to your tool kit.

Throughout this 128-page book you'll see that it is divided into 3 chapters; chapters include Bright and Beautiful, Warm and Rich, Neutral and Natural. Every pattern is just as beautiful as the next; you won't know where to begin. All the colors were fantastically picked and coordinated for every pattern. If you're looking to warm up with a handmade item then you must add Modern Crocheted Shawls & Wraps to your crochet book library.

I have never made a shawl but have made several afghans and love them. This book would be a great one to work from.
