Cuffed Shawl – Complete!

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!
