Wrapped in Color: 30 Shawls to Knit is comprised of thirty different knit shawl patterns, made with the gorgeous Koigu Handpainted Yarns. The book is written by Maie Landra and Taiu Landra, mother and daughter, part of the Koigu company. Each of the shawls are knit with brightly colored yarn, in delightful hand painted colorways.

The shawls in this book are made up of all different shapes and stitch patterns. Some are triangular, some are rectangular, some are crescents, and there’s a particularly interesting one made up of mitered squares in all different colors. Some of the patterns (such as the lacy shawls) have charts, so if you like to knit from a chart, this is a good choice.

Unfortunately, for those of us that don’t like charts, the book doesn’t have a written out version of these lace sections. The shawls in this book have all different constructions, such as top down, end to end, or join as you go, with the mitered square shawl. Some have pretty crochet edgings, fringe, or lacy borders.

This book definitely expects you to know how to knit, but does include a few pictures to help, and a list of all the knitting abbreviations used in the book in the back. The patterns all seem easy enough to follow, and are written out very well. I love the vibrant photos in this book, with the bright yarn showcased beautifully. All the shawls have variegated yarn used, to use the Koigu company’s hand painted yarn, but the shawls would look lovely knit in a solid color as well.  There are several photos of each shawl, including a full page photo of every shawl, and at least one of the photos shows the texture up close, which I love. This book is great, with the bold colored yarn, the easy to read patterns, and the clear instructions.
