Posted on March 02, 2021 by Deveter Brown | 0 Comments

 

For this months Crochet-A-Long with Furls we will be making a Sampler Shawl that is sure to be a great project for any crocheter, new or seasoned! This crochet project is full of different stitches and combinations that won’t let you get bored but will still give you the opportunity to mindlessly stitch away! Finished off with some fringe that really makes a statement, get ready to get compliments every time you wear this piece!

This week we will just be getting our hooks and yarn ready to start making this Sampler Shawl next week! So grab a hook and yarn and get to making some test swatches! The following 2 weeks will consist of creating the first half of the shawl and then finishing the second half and adding your fringe!
