Autumn is here and with it the yearning for something comfy to wrap yourself in! And what better than a knit or crochet shawl? Being such a fan of this wearable, I thought I’d share with you my top 5 favorite free crochet and knit shawls from some of my favorite designers.

Inspiration

Although the weather in Jakarta (which is where I am now) is not exactly asking for layer pieces, I will let you in on a little secret… The air conditioner inside any building is freeeeeezing!! Anyone who knows me will say that I’m crazy and to a degree, they do have a point. My internal thermostat is always on the fritz, so I’m usually always cold. Unless it’s 30 degrees outside, then I’m ok. Because of this, you will never see me going anywhere, even in Jakarta, without a wrap or a shawl, just in case a small breeze comes up. 😀

I can’t believe I’m the only one suffering from this, so I’d thought I’d share with you my favorite shawls and wraps from other designers. Of course, you can always check the Silver Lining Capelet if you’d like more ideas. 😉 Starting from 5 up to my to-go shawl, here is my list.

5. Dash Shawl by Knit Collage, as seen in All About Ami

Isn’t this just one of the most stunning shawls you’ve ever seen? I mean… look at the texture, the color palette, the comfy feels… I just want to wrap myself in it! And it’s such an elegant piece. You could wear a gala dress with it and look absolutely fabulous.

4. Mystic Morning Wrap by Two Of Wands

When you’re fighting off more than just an air conditioner, an oversized wrap like this one is ideal. But oversized, doesn’t mean it has to feel heavy and this lightweight fabric is just everything you need to be comfortable. The arrange of colors and the tassels are also a fantastic detail.

3. New Paths Shawl by One Dog Woof

There’s something about knitted shawls that have eyelets in the middle of the fabric. It’s a thing for me and this asymmetrical shawl is just it! I love how it looks light but also giving you a nice degree of comfort. Great to fight air conditioners off!

2. Crochet Le Nuage Wrap by Sewrella

If you ever wondered what it must feel like wrapping yourself in a soft cloud, then this wrap is surely the answer. It is just lovely and absolutely eye-catching! The bobbles really make it stand out. This one is a must-have in your closet!

Aaaaaaand…

1. Easy Triangle Wrap by Mama in a Stitch

And here it is… the number one from my favorite free crochet and knit shawls! It’s such a big one for me that I even made two of these just so that it’s always an option, whichever colors I’m wearing! 😀

Why do I love it? Because it’s the simplest wrap ever! There’s a video to explain step by step how to make it, but this one is so easy you barely need it! 

The first time I made this shawl I was practicing knitting stitches since I had just started knitting. Even with all the mistakes I made, it still looks stunning! And when you wear it, it gives you the exact right amount of comfy feels… With warm or chillier weather, it completes any outfit you’re wearing (especially when you have it in more than one color! 😀 )

Thank you, Jessica, for teaching how to make the easiest and BEST shawl ever!
