Shawls for the Sunny Season

Shawls for the Sunny Season

Sun's Out, Needles Up!

Just because the sun is shining, we're not finished obsessing over beautiful yarn and fun patterns, especially shawls. In fact, summer can be the best time to have a project or two on the go: 
 
🌞 Shawls are one piece, in one size, so you won't worry about swatching or fit!
🌞 Shawls are an easy accessory to add pop or sophistication to your casual summer wear
🌞 Shawls make terrific travel projects
 
While many shawls look best in lightweight yarns, there are plenty that shine in sport- and DK-weight for a faster finish. A few of our favorites to knit and crochet are below, and you can browse Shellye & Sydney's Summer Shawls Ravelry Bundle for even more inspiration!

Ready to Cast On...

Wait, aren't shawls too warm for summer? If you've ever been seated directly under an air conditioner, or strolled the beach on a foggy day, you'll know there are times when a light layer around your shoulders feels heavenly - even at the height of summer!
