Shaping Shawls by Anna Dalvi explains how to shape shawls while designing them, and contains 10 patterns as examples of the various shapes.
In the world of knitting books, there are books that are very instructional, books that are pretty, books with beautiful patterns and books that inspire. Sometimes we get lucky and one book straddles several of these criteria. Shaping Shawls... is a unique book that touches on all of the above categories.

The jewel-toned semi-solid colors in the shawls are a delight to see. What strikes me most about the book is the playfulness and variation within the different shapes.
- Stephen West, WestKnits
This is a GREAT book!... There is such an awesome range of styles, and the directions are so instructive, that by the time you finish reading it, you'll be able to tackle even the most complex of Anna's patterns.
