I'm an avid crocheter and bring my crochet with me almost
everywhere. I have pictures of some of my stuff up on Facebook and Ravelry.
My Ravelry user name is Carleneruns. I have another pattern
posted on a different page for Baby hats.
I fell in love with a beautiful shawl on Ravelry, but it was
knitted. So I was forced to design a similar shawl in
crochet. Here is a link to the pattern:
Formatted for Legal (8.5 x 14") Printing (PDF
or Excel spreadsheet)
Formatted for Letter (8.5 x 11") Printing (PDF
And here are some pictures of the finished shawl. It used 4
of Noro Silk Garden Sock, and about half a ball of Austermann Step
Note (July 4, 2009): I weighed the remaining black sock yarn
only had 20 grams left from the original 100 gram ball. So I
original yardage I quoted (1550 yards) was on the short side since
was based on 50 grams of black, not the 80 grams I actually used.
Actual yardage in my shawl as shown is 1680 yards. Updated pattern
files are posted (files are dated July 7, 2009).
