Crochet “V” Shawl (2011)
This was a travel crochet project. I started out wanting to make a Drops bolero project, which they did from 4 crocheted squares. I didn’t like the squares pattern, so I substituted “Square Pineapple Doily”, by Priscilla Hewitt. I didn’t have enough of the “Anne” colourway to make 4 squares, so I made two from “Anne”, and 2 from the black alpaca.
When I assembled it… I decided I didn’t like how it sat on me. Might have been better if the squares had been blocked, or if they’d all been the same colour. But I felt it was a little too “granny square”-ish. So, I took a page from some other book, made a 5th square, and assembled them in an “L” or a “V”. I like the way it sits on my shoulders easily (unlike a triangular shawl).
