The Shawl Saturday eBook feautures five shawl paterns from Maddie's 2019 pattern subscription club inspired by the four seasons: Make Anew, Centaurea, Loanin, Winter Lights & Quincythia.

Join me for a knitting adventure through the year: discover a spring-time shawl fresh in design and colour, giving you just enough warmth for those crisp spring days; a simple summer shawl, ideal for the beach, lake or pool; a rich and cosy shawl for autumn, perfect for hibernating in; and lastly, a winter shawl, made with pops of colour to brighten up the dark days.

Each of the four main patterns are accompanied by an appealing sheet of hand-illustrated “Shawl Inspiration Notes” that gives you lots of exclusive behind-the-scenes information about how the design came about!

The patterns have been professionally tech edited, and include charts (plus written equivalents), schematics, and where relevant, links to video and photograph tutorials.
