  2. Near Solstice Shawl - SPP7

  3. Christmas Past Sweater - SPP8

    From $7.99

       Six lovely shades of Shetland Spindrift are melded perfectly in this pleasing Fair Isle. Dale was inspired by his childhood memories of Dickens', A Christmas Carol, "I wanted to show Christmas through the haze of memory, so instead of using deep true shades, I chose colors that were soft and muted to suggest shapes we associate with Christmas rather than being too representative." The result is quite beautiful, with a corrugated rib lower edge and matching neck and cuffs. Christmas Past originally appeared in a Land's End publication to celebrate hand-knitting. Written instructions, plus charts. Techniques include two methods for cutting steeks, three-needle bind-off and carrying three yarns.

  4. Lace Alphabet Shawl - SPP9

    From $7.99

       Knitters are fond of expressing themselves not only through their knitting but also through messages or statements 'written' into their garments. Here Bridget guides you through the creation of two gorgeous and practical alphabets. Knitters can practice their ABCs as they knit a useful sampler scarf. Bridget's lace alphabets are easily applied to any lace design. Instructions with 2 charts: one bottom-up and one top-down.

Worked in the round from the bottom up with a mitered hem, and EZ's 'phoney seams', it features Dolman sleeves and a cropped body, with EZ's I-cord button loops.
