Shawl: A usually square, rectangular, or triangular piece of cloth worn as a covering for the head, neck, or shoulders.
As you can see by the definition for the word, a shawl is a versatile piece of clothing with many uses. It can be as complicated or as simple as you want; also it can be made with various material's including yarn.
In The Knitting Basket we have a sample shawl made from Estelle Sakura Silk Yarn, which is 50% silk, 30% cotton and 20 % acrylic and comes in 100 gram balls.
We even carry the free pattern so you can make one yourself.
We also carry a very wide range of colours of Patons Silk Bamboo Yarn. The yarn is 70% Viscose from Bamboo and 30% Silk and comes in 65g balls.
That yarn would also make a gorgeous shawl, including this pattern and this one. The Knitting Basket has this yarn on special at the moment, so why not take advantage of this and make yourself a shawl? The evenings will be starting to get cooler by the end of next month, so wrapping yourself in a shawl while enjoying a summer's night would be perfect.
Just to let you know, The Knitting Basket will be closed from July 26 through to August 3, 2015.
