Summertime Shawl

Dolcissimo e leggero, un piccolo sogno colorato al gusto di mirtillo

Simply Summer Street

I loved the finished Good Thoughts Shawl so much, I decided to make one for myself!


Using a free crochet pattern from Ravelry, Lizard, I made mine using cotton yarn (there is also a knitted version).


A while back I went to my LYS with my friend Miss Jennifer and purchased two skeins of Great Adirondack Co. Organic Cotton (color-Summertime).  This seemed to be the perfect project to use it for.


I absolutely adore this pattern.  The yarn is very soft, but I’m not in love with the color.  I thought it looked prettier while it was still in a hank.  However, worn with a solid white tee-shirt, I’m sure it will look pretty.

It needed a good blocking to open up the design.


I decided to add some tassels to weigh down the corners and I like the finished product!


A lovely pattern and it will be lovely…

The AWB Crochet Book No. 1, Fig. 34 & 35, Curled Aster & Pendant Buds.  I’ve rewritten the pattern and simplified the focal piece so that it can be made in one continuous thread.  I used DMC Perle Crochet Thread Size 12 and a #11 hook.
