Pattern of the Week: Sandolo Shawl
The Sandolo Shawl from Interweave Crochet Spring 2019 is sure to become your new favorite accessory. This stunning accessory designed by Melinda Miller brilliantly combines two of my favorite stitches. I’m sure you’ll love making this project as much as I did!
This lovely shawl is worked from the top down to the point with each stitch pattern decreasing down toward the tip of the shawl. The pattern combines shell stitches and popcorn stitches to create an intriguing combination of open stitches and dimensionality. The pattern is easy to remember from row to row, so once you’ve worked the first couple rows, you can easily keep going by memory until you reach the final point.
This project has a great visual effect with very little effort. It falls into the project story inspired by travel, so I’m already thinking about all the places I want to visit with this accessory. I envision it as the perfect thing to keep you warm as you ride a train through Italy. Or make it in cotton or bamboo and take it to the beach with you!
