Sweet Shawlettes, by Jean Moss, is a great little book showcasing 25 shawlette, capelet, wrap, & cowl patterns. (Though I admit to being pretty disappointed with the cowl patterns in the book - they are very unusual, which is cool, but a "cowl" is NOT a "shawlette" and shouldn't be in a "shawlette" book. Unfortunately most of the patterns in the book are a cowl).

Bronte is my favorite, though it's knit with Rowan Purelife Revive, a yarn I've never heard of before, a DK weight yarn not even listed in Ravelry.

There's also Kardamili, a two color shawl made with Sublime Bamboo & Pearls,

Harlequnn, a fun entrelac number knit with 2 skeins of bulky weight Rowan Colourscape Chunky for a fast, quick gift.

Kitty is beautiful, though not really my taste, and Mantilla, a lace weight wrap that I think will prove to be quite popular in time.

All in all, it's a cute little collection of knits that has a nice variety of projects in it, from fair isle, lace, cables, entrelac, and some unique ones I'm not quite sure how to describe. ( )

Sweet Shawlettes 25 Patterns for knitting cowls, capelets and more by Jean Moss
Chapters are broken up into : Country, Couture, Folk, Vintage
chokers are shown in colorful charted designs, brilliant color ways
Hats and scarves along with accessories are included with shawls
and capelets. There is so much to this book especially when I have the time to do serious knitting with such dull winter weather upon us. The colors really get you ready for spring time.
Techniques and stitches have a section on their own along with button and
knitting abbreviations, illustrated make this an easy to follow book for
any level of knitter. Like how the construction is done while knitting
to allow for just one seam, if that.
Mantilla caught my eye being raised Catholic and it doubles as a shawl
That and the Ceilidh Shawlette-love the patterned color scheme. ( )
