Over the past year I've become quite drawn to side to side shawls. The appeal? Knowing I can use up every bit of a loverly skein as well as the few cast on and bind off stitches required. When it isn't a side to side, I love a Faroese shawl :)

I prefer triangle over circle and have not tried other shapes yet.

I prefer knitting triangular shawls, especially if they're a bit wider than they are deep.


I like triangular shawls.

I love knitting and wearing shawls of all shapes and designs, from wispy but warm to big and cosy. I'm recently experimenting with short rows and softly curving crescents and I'm loving the results so far :)

I have knit a couple shawls and usually knit triangle ones but I love circular shawls they just take forever.


my current favorite is a crescent shape shawl.

I've knit triangular, semi-circular, and a scarf-sized crescent shawl. Each one has its own virtues and it's hard to pick a favorite. I'm interested in Faroese shawls simply because I haven't tried one yet.


I'm making a triangular shawl right now. It's the first shawl I've tried making as I'm a new knitter and just learning things like yo and k2tog. My ravelry id is cnuland.


My favorite shawls to knit are crescent-shaped ones because they stay on so much better :)


I generally prefer those that get smaller as you knit. I don't mind casting on a large number of stitches if I know that's going to be the worst of it. I tend to run out of steam with the expanding ones right about when each row takes more than 30 minutes to knit. I recently knit my first crescent and liked it very much. Trying side-to-side next, I think.

I prefer making triangular shawls, I like the way they fall on the body. I am intrigued with the "swirl" type of shawl, have some in my Ravelry queue. Ravelry name is purplepenguin.

I love semi-round or crescent shapes because I wear them like a cowl or scarf.

I love crescent-shaped shawls best. They seem to be the easiest to wear casually.

I'm really excited about this book! I tried to stay away from triangular shaped shawls for a long time--I think I thought that square and irregular shapes were more modern. More and more I am being seduced to knit triangle shawls, and they are becoming my favorite.


I really like crescent shaped shawls- they're so versatile!
