I’m excited to release our first pattern of the New Year! The Modern Day Shawl. It’s a quick herringbone stitch crochet shawl that is modern and chic. You’ll find this pattern published under our Luxury brand Sentry Box Designs
I realized just before Christmas that I’d never made my own mother a Triangle Shawl! Since they have to be my favourite style of scarf I knew I needed to work one up for her. They work up so quick that I was able to make one for my Mother-In-Law too.
I love a quick stunning make! I made my momma the stunning yellow shawl in Sugar Bush Yarns Canoe Sunset. I thought this colour would look great on her.
Due to the simplicity and repetitive pattern I decided it would make a great YouTube Tutorial. As soon as the kids went back to school I was able to film this video in an almost quite home. It seems the 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 stitch that gives the piece a ‘knit look’ and cool stitch pattern. Our video also includes how to make the large tassels and finish the shawl.
