It’s Free Pattern Friday!
Summertime can lead to a bit of crafting doldrums. We may not feel like covering our lap with a huge in-progress blanket when the days are long and warm. But there’s no reason to put down the hook and needles – there are plenty of great warm-weather yarns and projects out there!
Take today’s for instance. The Vane Shawl calls for an E-4 (3.5mm) hook and 6 balls of Cotton True Sport, a light 100% Pima cotton that practically radiates “cool.” The pattern itself is my favorite kind of shawl – worked from the top down. Fewer repeats on rows as you get to the final point means that progress gets faster as you go.
The fringe is a fun, summery detail. A nice touch on a pleasant project that won’t weigh you down.
We hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend.
