POW: Emergence Shawl

Interweave Presents Classic Crochet Shawls is the crochet book you need this summer! The book includes 20 free-spirited designs featuring lace, color, and more. Crochet shawls are my favorite project for summer: they are small enough that you can work on them without the project overheating your lap, they often incorporate open and breathable stitch patterning, they look great in cotton and linen yarns, and they are just right for grabbing as you run out the door on a cool summer evening. Needless to say, I want to make every one of the projects in this book.

Last month, I wrote about 10 Projects I Wish I’d Made for Yarn Fest. One of my favorite projects from that list was the Emergence Shawl by Kathryn White. This project incorporates fringe, beads, filet crochet, popcorn stitches, and diamond patterning—all my favorite things rolled into one pattern! It’s perfect. When I saw that this shawl was included in Classic Crochet Shawls, I knew it was the first on my list of 10 that I had to start. I’ve been working on the Emergence Shawl for about a week now, and I’m having a blast! Check out the pattern information below, and get started crocheting this fantastic shawl with me!

Filet crochet, popcorns, and beads add up to a slip of fabric that hugs and shapes and molds to make any outfit greater than the sum of its parts. Crocheted from the top down, this shawl narrows as you work it to the beaded, fringed end that adds enough weight and sparkle to make you a star pupil.
