Well, I guess two are "wraps" technically. I love shawls, I'm the shawl lady now and I love it! All were made over the summer, I've made a ton more but don't want a huge FO dump, so here are the highlights of my summer shawl knitting:

I jumped on the bandwagon way late, but now I understand why everyone loves to make Clapotis. I totally bought this yarn just so I could match it to eyeliner. I used Araucania Ranco, which is like my new favourite yarn. I love it so much!


My Juno Regina, which I am in love with. I made mine 7 repeats wide because I wanted a wider stole and had more yardage than the pattern called for, so i figured I'd use most of it up. That 42" of the middle section was killer though!
Made with Diamond Yarn Luxury Collection Baby Alpaca Lace (2.5 skeins)



And my latest, which I completed very recently, Lavalette. Made in worsted weight (cascade 220, about 2 skeins) so it's much bigger than the lace version, and much warmer, which I need because winter is fast approaching. I ran out of yarn at the end, so I cut the last repeat about 10 rows short so I could do the final rows properly.

So cute! I especially like the third one.. It looks really complicated, but I don't knit, so it could just be the pattern. I really like the colours you chose.

Thanks everyone!

erdbeerblau & ally-oops: Juno Regina is definitely my favourite too, it's a beautiful pattern but it's also simple enough to wear with just about everything, and I loooove that red!

brighteyed0ne: Thanks! No problem! I know it's simple to quickly search for something, but I usually don't end up doing it because I like just clicking links. hehe

Missing_Muse: I don't really consider anything all that complicated once it's broken down row by row, I always try to take things one step at a time! I adore all these colours, I usually wear all black and sometimes a hint of green, but I've recently tried to add more colour to my wardrobe. I figured I'd start small with accessories for a punch of colour. Plus, knitting in black all the time is so boring.

They're all beautiful I had never heard of Lavalette, so thanks or the link. I think I'll be making it in DK yarn. Wink

Thanks! I found it on Ravelry one day, it seems to be a pretty popular pattern with Ravelry members, it's a lovely pattern and really easy too! It's a good knit for when you need something you can just work on from your head.

I really like that they all have texture, and the red one with that pattern is spectacular.

Thank you! At first I was going to block out the wavy texture of the clapotis, but after wearing it once I kind of fell in love with it. I do really love the red one, definitely my favourite out of all my shawls so far.
