Whether it’s something light and breezy for summer or cuddly and warm for cool weather, this collection of shawls has it covered. A few are lacey and elegant for evenings out while others are more casual for running errands or lounging on the beach. Lots to choose from and the best part is, the patterns are all free!
I’ve separated them into two groups for easier browsing, the first bunch is crochet (the majority) and the knitting projects are underneath. As with all collections here on Tipnut, I’ll be adding new goodies as I find them so you may want to bookmark this page for future reference. Enjoy!
