My Cuffed Shawl is COMPLETE! Yea! It only took me about 6 weeks and one of those weeks I didn’t really get to work on it. I find that pretty good for my first big crochet project. I’m quite happy with it and hope to wear it this week with the mild weather coming.
As a reminder, this pattern was The Cuffed Shawl & More pattern from Leisure Arts. I found the pattern super easy to do and follow. It was basically double crochet stitch through out. The only thing I didn’t like was how the cuffs were done. How it was being added to the shawl seemed a little tedious, so I did the cuffs separately and then attached them afterwards which was a lot easier.
The yarn that I used was Lion Brand Yarn, Homespun, in the color Regency. I really like the color. The yarn was also easy to work with. When I was trying out different yarns for my Mom’s scarf for Christmas, I tried a texture yarn that I had a hard time determining where my stitches were because of the ‘bent’ yarn. This yarn was not too bad.
I went to JoAnn yesterday to find a button for the shawl. I was so excited when I found the below button! It matched perfectly!
Here are a few more pictures of the shawl….
