Tech edit please
So I love the designs in the book. I marked out several and started crocheting away, only after mic frustration to find there were major corrections released for almost half of the shawls in this book. Please, point that stuff out at the time of purchase. And please tech edit. Review by Marissa (Posted on 7/9/2018)
Poetic Crochet
This is a very beautiful book. The way the models were dressed enhanced the shawls and left you wanting to make almost everyone in the book. I find the patterns easy to follow with tip and hints I find it so helpful having the schematic and layout too. I teach crochet and own most all the books on the market. This is one of my favorite pattern books. Thank you Interweave for your great job in keeping crochet moving forward. Review by Karan (Posted on 9/27/2016)
Every shawl is elegant. Patterns are well written with detailed explanations. The photos are exquisite. Highly recommend this book. The only problem I have is which shawl to make first! Review by Alina (Posted on 9/5/2016)
Poetic is correct in naming these patterns
As a woman whom who thinks a drape of fabric shows off our sophistication, these wraps and shawls are just the right thing.. Perfect for anyone whom crochets no matter what ever your skill level is. Enjoy yourself as much as I have. Review by Marjorie (Posted on 1/5/2016)
Love the two shawls I've made
I made Skylark and it turned out beautifully. Orisons is almost finished and will equally beautiful. The written instructions are good and the drawings are incredibly valuable. I was able to memorize the patterns quickly so they worked up quickly. In the entire book there is probably only one pattern I won't make at some point. It's a great collection.

Eye-catching crochet shawls
I am an advanced Crocheter, and I have been busy with Christmas gifts, as with most of us. I have yet to try my hand at these beautiful shawls. I plan to make every one of them. They are eye-catching! Thank you for sharing this wonderful e-book. I had no problem with the download. Review by Harrietta (Posted on 12/29/2015)
Beautiful patterns, but takes time and patience.
I was really excited to buy this ebook because a variety of yarn weights are used, and I love how interesting each shawl is. I also like that there are a variety of shapes.

So far I have made one shawl, the Spring Dream, and started on another, Starry Skies. I've run into a couple of problems, however. For one thing, these patterns seem to assume much looser tension than I typically use. I usually don't have big gauge problems, but for these patterns, even when I block to the maximum of the stretch in the material, I still have to go up about two hook sizes to come close to what is expected.

In doing Starry Skies, I also find the pattern a little confusing. You start with a square, and after 6 rows, you are supposed to repeat the last three rows with repetitions. But if you repeat the pattern as written, it seems as if that would change how you start/end each row, since now the corner motifs would be in the center of each edge of the square, too. It would've been really helpful if the schematic included had shown the first repeated set, so that we could understand exactly how we are meant to adapt the repeats.

I haven't tackled any of the other patterns yet, but this is one book where there are so many beautiful designs, I could be happy making any of them. So I'm sure I'll enjoy this for a long time to come, even if I struggle with some of the patterns.

I haven't started anything yet, but these are absolutely beautiful shawls. I will be starting one for my daughter for her wedding, soon. After that, there are several more that I will be making. Review by Lynn (Posted on 9/11/2015)
What a delicious book, full of wonderfully designed shawls. It's like being a kid in a candy shop! If you love to crochet and love shawls, you will never, ever regret buying this eBook. Some absolutely lovely creations! Review by Laurie (Posted on 9/4/2015)
