We Can’t Stop Talking About These Shawl Knitting Kits

At some point in the last few years, shawls became my go-to knitting accessory. If you’ve taken a peek at Crafty’s exclusive new Cloudborn yarn, you probably already noticed that there are plenty of shawl-worthy yarns in the collection. Whether you’re knitting a delicate fingering-weight shawl or a cozy bulky-weight shawl, there are many fibers and colors to choose from.

We’ve made your next shawl easier than ever: With one of these kits, you’ll get a pattern from some of our favorite designers paired with the perfect yarn. Be warned, though: some of these shawls might even replace your favorite scarf!

Does the Lunaris shawl have a kit? I could not locate it where I expected to.

Are there any books or video classes for left handed knitters. Or how to convert a pattern from right handed knitting to left handed ones, I would love to try some of the offered patterns but it is difficult when your left handed. I’ve tried reversing but it gets very confusing.

I love most of the shawl kits, but I cannot use wool yarn. Can I buy just the patterns?
