Pattern of the Week: Frontier Shawl
If you’re a Tunisian crochet lover who enjoys experimenting with new stitches, you’ll want to try the Frontier Shawl. Extended stitches add to the flow and drape, and working from side to side makes this shawl slightly more challenging. This generously sized triangle shawl will transform any woman into a modern cowgirl. The Tunisian crochet stitches have a rope-like appearance, and the long fringe adds a bit of Western attitude.
As the Interweave offices are located in Colorado, we have a special affection for the Way Out West collection in Interweave Crochet Spring 2018. Saddle up that hook and get ready to stitch your way through the frontier.
