Nature's Wrapture - Contemporary Knitted Shawls by Sheryl Thies link for Nature's Wrapture

Nature’s Wrapture is the first shawl book I have seen that has patterns that are of the skill level that I need. I love the fact that there are patterns from the beginner level to intermediate so that even the most timid knitter has an opportunity to make something beautiful. The instructions for the patterns are written out so that you do not have to rely on charts.

The patterns are easy to follow. Each pattern has complete information for the skill level, finished measurements, materials, gauge, stitch patterns, general instructions and finishing.

Many of the patterns have unique styling with shaping, slits, or ties for the way they hang over the arms. These are not your grandmother’s shawls, but contemporary styled wearable wraps without being over the top. My favorites and are Sandy Beach and Fall Colors, both beginner/easy projects, and one of which will be my next OTN (on the needles).
