We have a new window display! Its the summer shawltacular over at fluph this July/August! I adore shawls, they are no longer granny chic (well I know my Grunny loves a good shawl to hap* her bits!) but glorious draped pieces of cloth to wrap around your shoulders on a warm evening to layering up under a jacket for the colder weather. Our window features four beautiful shawls all using yarn from fluph! 


The first shawl is Different Lines knit by my current knit designer crush Veera Välimäki, I love the strange shape of this shawl, I received one as part of a swap at Christmas and its my FAVE shawl to throw around my neck. This gorgeous specimen is knitted in our Drops Alpaca which is a sooper smooshy 4ply and my favourite of the drops line.  (pattern is 3.90)


This second stripy seductive number is Dream Stripes by Cailliau Berangere knit in the super smooshy Manos Del Uruguay silk blend and silk blend fino. However any 4ply yarn would work perfectly! Such a great wee pattern with a little bit of lace on the end.  (this is a free pattern)


This saucy little number was kindly knitted up by the awesome Louise Reilly (if you dont know this girl, you really should!! go find her on twitter) once again in the super squishy Drops Alpaca. You all need to come see this beaut in the window the stitch pattern is stunning and such a great size to throw over your shoulders or wrap around like our glamorous model! (HA!) Veil of Leithen by EastLondonKnit (this pattern is £3.50) 



Our fourth and final shawl is much more stunning in real life than wrapped around a mannequin. This shawl was knitted by one of my besties Hannah Dickson in some super soft Primula by Adriafil and edged with some stunning orange Schoppel-Wolle Gradient. The pattern is Smooth Move by Stephen West and is quite a large shawl, the right size for long summer walks with close friends, or for covering your shoulders whilst enjoying a cold glass of something with friends on a nice summer evening!  (this pattern is $6)

These shawls all really need to be seen in person. If you too have caught the shawl bug there is a tonne of inspiration on the fluph pinterest boards. Then knit all the shawls and drape them all over your body! Its the new way forward in shawl wearing!!

*hap in Doric is to cover. for example "hap your lugs" is to "cover your ears" stop listening in.
