I'm excited to release our first pattern of the New Year! The Modern Day Shawl. This modern and chic triangle shawl is eye catching and a luxurious piece to wear! The Shawl is worked in the Herringbone Double Crochet Stitch that gives this shawl an interesting stitch pattern yet is easy and quick to work up. Make this shawl in a day using bulky weight yarn! Designed in Sugar Bush Yarns Canoe.
I realized just before Christmas that I'd never made my own mother a Triangle Shawl! Since they have to be my favourite style of scarf I knew I needed to work one up for her. They work up so quick that I was able to make one for my Mother-In-Law too. I made my momma the stunning yellow shawl in Sugar Bush Yarns Canoe Sunset. I thought this colour would look great on her.
Due to the simplicity and repetitive pattern I decided it would make a great YouTube Tutorial. As soon as the kids went back to school I was able to film this video in an almost quite home. It seems the husband is always around to make a little noise (lol).
If you've never worked the herringbone double crochet stitch before I work through it slowly in my video tutorial. It's such a great stitch that gives the piece a 'knit look' and cool stitch pattern. Our video also includes how to make the large tassels and finish the shawl.
