This pretty skein of hand dyed yarn from Pigeonroof Studios has been sitting in my stash for a long time. It was waiting for the perfect pattern to show off it's beautiful colors. This yarn is so soft and it has a nice drape.The All Shawl by Doris Chan is a pattern designed to use any yarn and any gauge. It's starts off at the neck by using Fsc (foundation single crochet). After that, it's just a matter of increasing in between the seven panels. This pattern is fast and easy with beautiful results.I made my sister model the shawl while she was visiting a few weeks ago. Although I can photograph myself, it is much easier to photograph someone else wearing it. After I made her model a few items, I pan fried her some homemade dumplings as payment. She didn't know it would take a while and was starving by the end of the photo shoot.Although I would never wear the shawl the traditional way (the above 2 photos), it does show off the edging quite nicely.In case you haven't noticed, I have been on a shawl kick lately. I never made a shawl until this year and now I can't stop. I have now realized how versatile a shawl can be. Look at the many ways it can be wrapped around your neck.And it can be flung over your shoulder just like a scarf. Just perfect!
