Work in Progress by CAL member Donna Cirkot

This week I had a lot of fun watching your progress and and all your gorgeous pictures on our Facebook group Fun with Furls. It thrills me to see the leaves popping up on your projects in different colors!

In the second part of the shawl the width of our leaves will grow a bit and we will finish with a no-fuss, simple edging.

Pattern Notes:          

  1. The beauty of knitted cable leaves has been “translated” to crochet in this Embossed Leaves Reversible Shawl. The shawl has two distinctive looks where on one side the design features offset textured leaves textured leaves and the other shows a knit-look relief pattern.
  2. The shawl is worked from the top down and increases at row ends and stitches near center line. Shawl is divided by a center “spine” or middle stitches’ where first section crocheted before spine is repeated or mirrored after spine.

Block shawl by soaking it in cool water until thoroughly wet. Squeeze out excess water gently and pinning it on a flat surface. Make sure to pull and pin the waves at the edging to make it really defined as seen in picture below. Remove it only when completely dry.

A Note About Comments

Furls Crochet Team

November 9th, 2016

Hey everybody! Shortly into our CALs we realized that our out-of-the-box blog comment system wouldn't let us reply to your comments.

We've since installed Disqus, above, which allows you guys to respond to each other and us to reply to your questions; seems like a no-brainer!

We will continue to display existing comments from the old comment system on all existing blog posts. All future commenting will be done through Disqus. Enjoy!
