Knit shawl patterns are the perfect accessory for any outfit. Whether you are looking for a shawl to keep the chill off at the office or a romantic shoulder cover for a date, you’ll find something perfect here. The beautiful thing about knit shawl patterns is that you can completely change the look of a shawl by simply choosing a different color to knit it up with. Something that looks casual and fun knit up in a bright color can instantly transform into a romantic knit shawl to wear on date when knit up in black, white or metallics.
If you are looking for a shawl to knit for a friend, or perhaps as a prayer shawl, these patterns are all great choices. Most are very easy and knit up quickly, so you’ll be able to get one done in no time. If you know someone who is going through a rough time or an illness, pick one of these shawls and knit it up in a special yarn that you know they’ll love. While you are working, think healing thoughts and say a prayer. It’s believed that these thoughts and prayers then become woven into the fabric of the shawl and are then wrapped around the shoulders of the recipient when they need it most. Shawls given in a time of need often become the most treasured gift and bring a smile whenever they are worn.
