Inspired Shawls: 15 Creative Patterns for Year-Round Knitting is a lovely new knit pattern book has me absolutely drooling! Today I get to show off what you’ll find inside, and give away a copy to one lucky Moogly reader, courtesy of Dover Publications – and share a nifty discount code too!
Disclaimer: This giveaway was sponsored by Dover Publications, but all opinions are my own.
Inspired Shawls by Laura Zukaite is one of the most exciting knit shawl pattern books I’ve seen to date. So. much. gorgeousness.
Normally when opening a pattern book, you’re lucky to find 5 or so projects that you want to make – 1 or 2 for yourself, maybe a couple for gifts. Out of the 15 patterns in Inspired Shawls, I found 10 I wanted to start right away – and all of them are gorgeous!
Inspired Shawls patterns include written instructions, schematics, measurements, and lots of great clear photos. Many of the patterns also include knitting charts and even color charts when applicable.
I wouldn’t say this is a book for beginners. There are a lot of special stitches, techniques, and colorwork here, and not a lot of handholding – no basic stitches or even advanced technique tutorials (though of course the special stitches are defined). So if you are an intermediate+ level knitter – or ready to expand your skills! – then this is a gorgeous book to add to your collection.
And as I mentioned above – I’ve got a great discount for you! Just CLICK HERE to save 25% on ALL Knitting, Crochet, and Craft Books on Dover, including Inspired Shawls!

I have not used Dover books but it is on my list too.
I have, I am sure, at least browsed through a Dover publication somewhere along the line! I recognize some of the covers. I’d love to try this one: “Miniature Crocheting and Knitting for Dollhouses”.
The Crocheting Patchwork Patterns book looks fun!
I have not purchased any dover books. There are a few I like, the Teddy Bear Studio: Create Your Own Handcrafted Heirlooms, how to make them, looks great, a fun hobby. Love any crocheting books
Oh I really want to win!!!!!!
Looks like a great book!
Looks like a great selection of designs!
I specially like the white mesh shawl.
I like the Crocheting Patchwork Patterns book
Great selection of subjects
Not sure if I’ve used Dover books/patterns before but there are some really cute crochet ones there! I like the dumpling cats! Crochet shawls would be good to add. 🙂

I have not used Dover books but would like to try making doilies so will look at them closer. Thanks for the givaway.
I like the variety in crafting styles available on the website. I have never used one of their books before but now I definitely want to.
Beautiful shawls! I am into making shawls right now and these would make a great addition to my line up!
I have heard of Dover but not have the privilege to purchase their books. They have wonderful books/patterns I will one day be able to try
Thank you for the give away. These shawls are beautiful.
I love to make shawls & learn new techniques. This book looks interesting.

I am fascinated by the “Wacky Doggy Knits” from Alison Jenkins. I would like to make them all for my 10-year-old.
I really enjoy knitting shawls. I am full figured and a shawl pattern is almost always the right size.
I have loved and appreciated Dover Books for, well, decades now. I believe my first purchase was of Celtic knotwork. but there were doll patterns and old cookbooks in there, too. They cover *so* much, I am at a loss to think of anything they need more of, you know? I just hope Dover can keep on being the valuable resource they have always been.
Beautiful patterns! Thank you for the chance!
Lovely patterns. It’s a really nice giveaway. I hope I win this.
I’ve not come across any Dover crochet books before but Inspired Shawls would be a book I’d definitely flip through & most likely buy……thanks for the opportunity to own a copy.
I have never heard of Dover books before, but looking at the selections available I’ll surely do so in the future. My favorites are from the Needlework collection. By far, my favorite is Inspired Shawls.
I have not used Dover Publications. I like the Traditional Fair Isle knitting books and the Knitter’s Almanac books/
I have never looked at a Dover Publication but from the looks of the cover of this book, I will be looking for Dover Publications.
I don’t have any Dover books, but I love this one and the Crochet Mandalas book looks great too!
I don’t own any Dover publications but it looks like I should. This book looks like fun and I love the projects in it. I would love to see more shawls featured here.
i don’t think i have dover books. i love looking at shawls/wraps/capes.. they are on my to do list.
I have a number of Dover crochet books, as well as other Dover craft publications.
I have used some of Dover coloring books and also have downloaded some of their images, particularly vintage sets.
Love the shawls in this book
You have caught my interest with this Dover Book!
beautiful designs can’t wait to see them up close
I know Dover more for there coloring books. I’ve never used any of their craft books. I would like more crochet fashion.
I don’t think I’ve ever used Dover books before, but the book “Contemporary Cables” looks enticing since I’ve never done cables before.
I have not used dover books but would like to add some to my collection!
I went to Dover Books. I’m surprised to see a lot more crochet books!! Wonderful!
And these shawls are gorgeous! Yum!!
I have not used Dover books in craft projects, etc.
