I’m excited to release The Modern-Day Shawl. It’s a quick herringbone stitch crochet shawl that is modern and chic. You’ll find this crochet pattern published under our Luxury brand, Sentry Box Designs
I realized that I’d never made my own mother, a Triangle Shawl! Since they have to be my favourite style of a scarf, I knew I needed to work one up for her. The herringbone stitch crochet shawl works up so quickly I made one for my Mother-In-Law too.
I made my mom the stunning yellow shawl in Sugar Bush Yarns Canoe Sunset. I thought this color would look great on her.
I’ve been in love with Sugar Bush Yarns Canoe for a long time. It’s such a unique yarn. It has a chain like weave with colourful flecks throughout. I also love that it’s a bulky weight yarn so it works up quickly. I keep this yarn in stock in my shop so I’ve made kits available for purchase.
The Crochet Stitch
Due to the simplicity and repetitive crochet herringbone stitch pattern, I decided to make a video tutorial for my YouTube channel. As soon as the kids went back to school, I was able to film the herringbone stitch crochet shawl video in an almost quiet home. It seems my husband is always around to make a little noise (lol).
If you’ve never worked the herringbone double crochet stitch before I work through it slowly in my video tutorial. It’s such a great crochet stitch that gives the piece a ‘knit look’ and cool stitch pattern. Our crochet shawl video also includes how to make the large tassels and finish the shawl.
