Summertime Shawl

I loved the finished Good Thoughts Shawl so much, I decided to make one for myself!

Using a free crochet pattern from Ravelry, Lizard, I made mine using cotton yarn (there is also a knitted version).

A while back I went to my LYS with my friend Miss Jennifer and purchased two skeins of Great Adirondack Co. Organic Cotton (color-Summertime).  This seemed to be the perfect project to use it for.

I absolutely adore this pattern.  The yarn is very soft, but I’m not in love with the color.  I thought it looked prettier while it was still in a hank.  However, worn with a solid white tee-shirt, I’m sure it will look pretty.

It needed a good blocking to open up the design.

I decided to add some tassels to weigh down the corners and I like the finished product!

A lovely pattern and it will be lovely to wear this on a cool summer night!

Happy Crocheting!
