A New Shawl

Shawls and Ponchos are making a comeback.  We’ll be having classes soon at The Studio to make some really nice ones.  This is a shawl I just finished this morning with a simple shell stitch…easy to learn, fast to work up and can be made into a shawl, a scarf or a throw. Watch for a class soon.

The Challenge

20170912_064822A few weeks ago my cousin and several friends share photos with me on Facebook for a really beautiful shawl in crochet.  I searched for a pattern but couldn’t find one so I decided to try to make it up.  Here is the start.  I have lots of embellishments to add to it.  The original has lots of flowers and roses.  I hope to be able to show you the finished one next week.

I finished my project using the Butterfly Stitch.  It worked up quickly and looks nice.  I like trying different stitches to see what effects we can get.  This one will work well for scarves, shawls, blankets, etc. You can find an easy to follow pattern here.

I am in love with the Caron Cakes self-striping yarn.  It’s amazing!  I just completed this shawl/wrap out of the Caron Cakes Red Velvet yarn.  It’s beautiful and I didn’t change the color one time.  It striped all by itself!  For those of  you who knit or crochet know why I am so excited about this wonderful yarn.  Plus it’s soft and the colors are wonderful.  The yarn was originally suppose to be available for only 3 months in Michaels Stores as a special Birthday Yarn for the Caron 100th Anniversary.  But everyone LOVED it so it’s going to continue to be available.  Yeah!  I can’t wait to try another colorway.
