quick + purly: 5 square shawls

Now that summer is squarely upon us (no pun intended), and the Solstice arrives on Sunday, I'm looking for some travel knitting. For me travel knitting means shawls: one skein of beautiful laceweight yarn that squishes easily into my purse or carryon + one long circular needle so that no stitches will be lost + one compelling pattern.

Have you ever worked a square shawl? What's your favorite on-the-go type of knitting?

Here are a few that caught my eye this week.

  1. Life Cycle by Laura Nelkin $7 USD 
    Gorgeous progression of patterns
  2. Alcove my Mam'zelle Flo €5 EUR 
    Perfect travel knitting with the garter stitch center
  3. legacy square shawl by bunnymuff $5.99 USD 
    Swoony stitch patterns
    Be careful with those beads when traveling, though!
  4. Spider Queen by Hazel Carter $8 USD 
    The pattern page picture does not do this beauty justice -
    be sure to check out the projects pages!
  5. Poinsettia Shawl 401 by Lucy Neatby $12 CAD 
    Clever structure and beautiful stitch patterns
And I can't forget the square "travel" shawl I designed for myself a few years back: Hap-py (updated pattern layout coming soon!) $7 USD. I just loved knitting this one!
Easy-to-remember center and edgings
make this perfect social knitting
