Pattern of the Week: Mondaine Shawl
I’m always on the hunt for a perfect shawl pattern, and the Mondaine Shawl from Jane Howorth in Interweave Crochet Fall 2018 might just be it. Shawls are a great project for wrapping up the summer and launching into the fall season.
I’m always on the hunt for the perfect shawl because I wear them all year long. I have a shawl on hand for overly air-conditioned buildings in the summertime. I’ll cuddle up in one as I watch the leaves change from my office in the fall. And I need one to wrap up for extra warmth under my favorite winter coat. The Mondaine Shawl will carry me through all these seasons in style, and I can’t wait to make it.
Use triple treble crochet stitches to create the lovely fanning shell pattern found in this shawl. Triple treble crochet stitches use four yarnovers before inserting your hook into the stitch, creating an extra-long stitch (and a quick-to-make project). Make the shawl with Manos del Uruguay Fino, a combination of merino and silk in an exquisite sportweight yarn. We love Manos del Uruguay because women’s cooperatives in South America make the yarn, so you’ll feel great about using this yarn to make a shawl for yourself, your mother, your friends . . . it’s a yarn company we love to support!
If you’re looking for a great shawl pattern, look no further! The Mondaine Shawl should be your first project for fall. You’ll love wearing it all season long.
