At The Crochet Project they love a good shawl, and since they know you do too, they are back with another collection.
All the previous books in the collection featured designs for 4ply/fingering weight yarn. This one is a bit different: each pattern uses laceweight yarn.
Joanne Scrace of The Crochet Project used to be slightly afraid of finer yarn, and found it fiddly and thought it took too long to work up. But as she started to play around with it, she created patterns that are naturally quick to grow and where the need to find tiny spaces to put your hook are minimized. Now she loves laceweight: it gives a finesse to every pattern you create with it and the delicate stitches can add a layer of magic to even the most ordinary stitches.
The shawls themselves are light as a feather and so small to pack into a bag. As for the extra time? Just see it as better value for money on your hobby! The ultimate in slow fashion.
Find the joy of laceweight for yourself with this selection of five patterns.
