Darn you Polar Vortex. And as you are one of those unpredictable natural phenomena I don't know when you'll go away. This, added to P. Phil seeing his shadow over the weekend....Double Ugh!
We have no milk, no eggs, no bread... Triple Ugh!
But that's okay, I can deal with that. I am not running out to the store. We'll have to make do with what's in the cupboard.
So, I stayed cozied up indoors and engaged in one of my favorite pastimes. Crochet. Yay! (Anybody surprised?)
This month I am participating in a "crochet along", Project Crochet hosted by Sugar Bee Crafts, 733 Blog and Twin Dragonfly Designs. The requirement is simply to choose a crochet project, (or more) to make in the month of February. You can use one of the patterns these ladies are making or chose a project of your own. Then...
Share, share, share your completed project on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the #projectcrochet hashtag.
Corner to Corner Crochet Shawl
Ch 4, slip stitch in first chain to create a circle.
Ch 4, 3dc in circle, ch 1, 1dc in circle, ch 4, turn.
3dc in 1st sp, ch 1, 3dc in next sp, ch 1, 1dc in same sp, ch 4, turn.
3dc in 1st sp, ch 1, 3dc in next sp, ch 1, 3dc in next sp, ch 1, 1dc in same sp, ch 4, turn.
3dc in 1st sp, ch 1, 3dc in next sp, ch 1, 3dc in next sp, ch 1, 3dc in next sp, ch 1, 1dc in same sp, ch 4, turn.
Note: You are simply going to work 3 dc in each space across until the last space in which you will work 3 dc ch 1 and another double crochet. You are working an increase in every row. Just keep going to make the shawl as large as you want it.
This pattern will look great if you change yarn color every few rows. I will share my choice of edging with you after I've decided on one.
If you get stuck or have any questions about the pattern, drop me a line and I'll try to help.
