Holy mother of pearl.
I never know how anything I create is going to be received.
A few products or patterns will turn out to be flops. Some will be home runs. Most will be somewhere in the middle.
Let’s just say this Adeline Shawl was a HUGGGGE and stunning home run.
20,000 people visited our site the first day to see it.
It was downloaded 5,000 times in the first 24 hours.
For the first time ever with one of my patterns, it was showing in the “Hot Right Now” patterns on Ravelry. Woot!
It was quite insane and fascinating. I had actually assumed since it was a more advanced pattern that the opposite would happen. But I’m thrilled and tickled beyond words that it was so well-received.
So… thank you. I cannot wait to start seeing all the versions pop up online.
When you make yours, use #adelineshawl so I can seeeee!
If you’re on Ravelry, you can favorite it and upload your project here.
ABOUT THIS PATTERN
This pattern is designed for use with 2 skeins of our Superwash Merino Wool Resilient Sock yarn in colorway: SAFFRON. Choose any colorway you like, though!
Pineapples upon pineapples upon pineapples
•A more advanced pattern for those comfortable with crochet. If you’re familiar with working pineapples, this pattern will be a breeze. If not, you’ll learn something new!
•This forms a triangle shape and can be worn in multiple ways: as a traditional shawl wrapped around your shoulders or like I’ve shown in the photo, as a bandana/cowl.
•You really don’t have to worry about running out of yarn because the design is a repeating pattern. Just stop when you decide you’re finished and work the edging rows and you’re done!
•Picture tutorial included for EACH row so you’re never left in the dark, scratching your head in confusion.
•Ideal for solid or tonal yarns, but hey, go wild and crazy if you want and use a variegated. Life is too short for holding yourself back from your greatest desires!
•You’ll need a size E (3.5 mm) hook. You’ll want to be comfortable with single, double and triple crochets, as well as chaining and slip stitching.
Isn’t it just lovely?
I hope you enjoy.
