Reaching Out, One Stitch At a Time

Boardwalk Shawlette CAL

Introducing the Boardwalk Shawlette CAL! (I had some great name suggestions on my FB page, so I had my 2 oldest daughters choose the name.)

This asymmetrical shawlette is perfect for those cool spring days when you still need some warmth but don’t want to wear a coat. And it works up super fast, so the crochet-a-long will only last about a week.

I’d love for you to join us! You will be able to find current release dates below. I’d love for you to post photos or ask questions in my Facebook group.

  • 1.4 oz. charcoal #(19-4205) – B

Note: Because these hanks have pre-cut colors I used the colors I wanted from the Night Owl (which required 2 separate hanks of that colorway). If you’d like to purchase less yarn you can use the colors it came with and only purchase 1 Night Owl & 1 Parchment Paper.
