In February Annie’s Hook and Needle club sent the kit “The Sedona Shawl” It is a subtle ripple pattern of fine yarn of red, purple and green yarn.

The kit come with enough yarn to complete either a crochet or knitted shawl. I opted for the crochet version, which means I needed a working knowledge of only two stitches, the chain and double crochet. The pattern was mark easy, which also meant that it was a relaxing and fun pattern to work. If you have mastered the double crochet (The Double Crochet) and chain stitch (The Chain Stitch), then you will have no trouble crocheting this shawl.

For a few afternoons on a snowy afternoons in February while I listen to the audible book “The Peace Child” by Don Richardson as my fingers flew. This was an easy pattern that repeated row three until the shawl measured 62 inches. This is one of those patterns you will want to work when you unwind and just let the tension leave your body as you crochet.

The only think I enjoy crocheting more than shawls is a beautiful afghan so this is easily a pattern I can see myself repeating. The pattern was written with an easy to follow style so I am rating this kit a 9, losing only one point for the skeins coming in unmark packaging. I really loved this yarn, and it hurts more then I can write that I will never be able to duplicate this pattern exactly.

Is there a yarn you ever worked with that you are no longer able to obtain? Please share.

Until next time, keep those hooks flying.
