Light, lacy, and full of color, a knit shawl is the quintessential knit for springtime weather. To celebrate the first day of March (and in the hopeful spirit of spring), we’ve rounded up some of our favorite knit shawl patterns on AllFreeKnitting. This lovely bunch is a dazzling array of intricate lace stitch work and flowing, draped silhouettes. These classically constructed knit shawl patterns are worthy of being passed down to your loved ones for years to come. Have fun mixing and matching pastel-colored fibers or bright whites for a gorgeous seasonal accessory. The beauty of knit shawl patterns is their versatility in a number of situations. Knit any one of these patterns in a soft white and use it to wrap up baby up for a spring christening or keep a bride’s shoulders modestly covered for a May wedding.
Knit shawl patterns are perfect for relaxing activities outdoors on a breezy day. Keep chills at bay while sprucing up the front walk or gardening in the back yard. There’s nothing more lovely than the look of a flowing shawl on an after-dinner walk around the neighborhood or an early morning hike. These beautiful displays of lace make great layering pieces and are the essential knit accessory for variable spring weather.
