Fall River Shawl Kit: 5 Reasons It’s the Crochet Shawl You Need for Fall!
One of our favorite projects from Interweave Crochet Fall 2017 is now a kit! The Fall River Shawl is the crochet shawl you need for fall! Discover 5 reasons we love this shawl and why we know you’ll love it, too.
1. Lisa Naskrent is a crochet genius.
Lisa Naskrent is always thinking “what if” when she creates, and her creations are one of a kind. Lisa designed and created the wildly popular Water Lily Shawl from Interweave Crochet Spring 2016 and it was the shawl we couldn’t stop making! The Fall River Shawl is sure to be just as addictive. As you work the rows, you can’t help but be impressed by its intricacy and how each row fits together.
2. Post stitches in lace (yes, you read that right).
If you’ve worked crochet lace before, you know the focus is on the space between the stitches. This project combines picots and post stitches so the lace has open spaces AND a textured dimensionality. The pattern calls for you to work 6 post stitches around a single stitch! We bet you’ve never worked crochet lace like this before!
3. This yarn is AMAZING.
The Fall River Shawl Kit includes 2 skeins of The Fibre Co. Road To China Lace (distributed by Kelbourne Woolens). This yarn is made from 65% alpaca, 15% silk, 10% camel, and 10% cashmere. It is luxury in a skein. It is such a treat to work with this yarn. Your fingers will be happy as you make it, and your shoulders will be happy as you wear it.
4. The kit comes in 2 colors.
You can order this kit from Interweave in 2 incredible colors! The ruby colorway is perfect for fall and the color we chose to feature in Interweave Crochet Fall 2017. This rich red color has been popular this season and will carry you through the holidays. The kit is also available in Sapphire, a shade of blue perfect for the depths of winter. You can’t go wrong with either color. If you’re having trouble choosing, treat yourself and get them both!
5. This is a shawl you’ll actually wear.
Incredible texture? Rich lace? Soft yarn? Beautiful colors? This shawl will be your favorite accessory this year.
Not only is this shawl fun to make and beautiful to wear, it will make the perfect holiday gift. Who do you know that would love this crochet shawl kit? Let us know in the comments below.
