Homespun Pineapple Shawl

Finished my shawl and it's sooooooooo snuggly. I used Lion Brand Homespun in Metropolis and a K hook. It'll be really comfy in late fall/early winter or if the a/c in church is cooling a little too well.

Here it is, I had to put something light under it so that you could see the pattern better:





I'm going to make one more that I know of, for my secret pal for her birthday. It's not till August so I have plenty of time.

Now to get back to the pillowghan.

Thanks, Ken

Yeah, I did adapt a doily pattern but I wasn't the first.

It's right here:

The only corrections are you only need 16 dc on the first rnd and 34 on the 3rd rnd, including the starting ch-3

Nancy said...

This is just beautiful!! Congrats on a gorgeous finish!

Thanks everyone.

It took 5 skeins of Homespun, 4 whole ones and about half of the 5th one with a K hook.

Those are so nice! I would love to see it one to get an idea of size and how it lays. You did a great job and the pattern shows up so nice and the color is wonderful.

Thanks Heather, the 2 I made fit me with room to spare and I wear a 16-18 so I'm a pretty good sized woman.

I'd put them at around an X-large to a 1X-large.

Very Beautiful, but I am a little confused. (don't take much to do it either) LOL Anyway, the link you gave "That crochet guy" was the link to the original doily pattern, correct? Did you post the instructions on how you adapted the pattern to become the beautiful shawl? I would love to see it, especially if I somehow missed it. Thanks.

The link was removed it there anyway to get the pattern on a different site
