Sidewalk Shawl Crochet Along


When I saw this Crochet-Along at Indie Lovely, I knew I had to join in.  I've never done one, but could definitely use some inspiration to get back to crocheting (which I haven't done much of this summer) and this seemed like the perfect thing.  I also love the pattern of the Sidewalk Shawl and am making it for my friend Julie to wear over her wedding dress at her Fall wedding (I'm thinking she'll need something over her shoulders during travel time outside in November in the Midwest).

So yesterday afternoon, I used naptime to get started (I also watched Being Elmo with Jack...great story)...

And then after the kids were in bed, I worked a little more (the color didn't change, our lights just look very yellow when it is dark out)...

I'm using a 4 worsted weight in cream and I should also mention that I am not planning on doing the fringe, but am now on the lookout for a scallop edge or another border that will look a bit more formal.  So far, it's a fun pattern and I love how it's coming out, but it's a pattern that you have to pay attention on and this shawl is probably going to need some blocking when finished so all the detail shows.  I love all the little pineapple motifs that are showing already!

I've been sort of eying that Sidewalk Shawl pattern (aren't pineapples awesome?), so I'm glad to hear you say it's a good'un so far. And what an amazing wedding shawl it's going to be, it will be all elegant and cozy and lovely.
