A Quick Project

Image

Last week I decided to use up some of my spare yarn by crocheting a shawl. I picked one that was in the “The Crocheted Prayer Shawl” book. After looking through the book and looking at the amount of yarn required, I found one that I had enough yarn for. I decided to crochet an easy level pattern called the “Lattice Shawl”.

This is a good pattern for a beginner that works up quickly with a repeating pattern every four rows. The pattern consist of double crochets (Double Crochet) and the V stitch (V Stitch). With no border to work, I started working the fringe the same day I worked the last row.

I like to use the Susan Bates Fringe Maker with a rug hook instead of a crochet hook. It has a clasp that closes around the yarn, ensuring no strings will fall off while I pull it through the required stitch. (Pictures Below)

I had no real purpose in crocheting this piece except I was in-between projects and I wanted use up some of my yarn stash. So you are looking at the first project I am putting up for sale on Etsy. I was thinking when I have five items to sell I would open up an account. Wish me luck.

Until next time, keep those hooks flying.

About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.
