The staff are sad to announce the closure of the shop. This had been due to bad management by the owner who did not understand the book trade. He did not know the value of this lovely little shop.
Crochet your own shawls, wraps, capelets and more from this collection of stylish patterns
Shawls are a simple yet colourful way to liven up your wardrobe - they are comforting and cosy, but they can also be stylish and delicate. Modern Crocheted Shawls and Wraps has 35 patterns ranging from a simple, slip-on crochet wrap, to a large open-work pattern shawl. There are lace-patterned shawls to throw over your shoulders at a party, or capelets to add a layer of warmth to your outfit on chilly days. Granny hexagons and stars are used to make giant rectangular wraps, while star stitch and popcorn stitch add texture and weight. There's even a 'stash-buster' pattern with a mix-and-match border designed to use up your colourful leftover yarns. Many of the shawls would make excellent gifts - particularly as 'prayer shawls' - and of course, one size fits all! This collection of patterns from Laura Strutt features her usual up-to-date style and modern pallette of brights, variegated yarns, and neutrals, while many of the patterns use the increasingly popular super-chunky and variegated yarns. First Published in 2016, this is a new edition.
