You Have to Hear Vickie Howell on Crochet Shawls
How many shawls have you made? Whatever that number is, you definitely need at least one more. Check out the Torrance Triangle Shawl by Vickie Howell. This crochet shawl is easy and the perfect blend of textured mesh fabric and simple lace.
Vickie says: “Whether you’re a lady who lunches or a hipster who hustles, a good triangle shawl is an on-point accessory. Go classic by using it to cover your shoulders, or be a badA*@ by wearing it bandit-style—either way the Torrance Shawl, with its open weave and center-out construction, is a treat to stitch!”
You might recognize Vickie’s name from her Parenthook column in Interweave Crochet or her time on Knitting Daily TV. Well-known to many in the craft industry, Vickie was the host and creative consultant of the DIY Network and HGTV’s show “Knitty Gritty” for 8 seasons. Additionally, she was the co-host of DIY’s “Stylelicious,” Lifetime Television’s web series “CRAFTED,” as well as several craft-based TV specials. She is a book author, designer, social media maven, and host of her own popular podcast, Craft-ish. Yes, she is a very busy woman who loves fiber.
In 2016, in partnership with Interweave, Vickie launched her Yarncraft series, of which she says: “The Yarncraft Collection celebrates the love of fiber, no matter how it’s manipulated. It’s really important to me that knitting and crochet are accessible to all, so it is my hope that pieces I design are simple and quick enough to be completed by fellow busy people—but with just enough detail to keep stitchers interested. Enjoy!”
