When winter blows through the land, knitting is as much as practical defence against the cold and soul-soothing, necessary hygge endeavour to bring some light in the dark and cold. Sylvia McFadden’s 'Gentle Armour, Five Shawls for Sensitive People', features five worsted-weight patterns for five beautiful shawls. These lush knits are the salve you need for whatever the world throws your way! Worsted weight shawls knit up quicker, and are super cozy and delectable.
"Gentle Armour" features 5 gorgeous knitting
- With Ease - With Ease is a sideways asymmetrical triangle shawl with an all-over curvy lace motif.
