The biggest pattern I’ve ever done!
So I started a new crochet pattern a couple weeks ago and it’s going really well, considering it’s the biggest project I’ve ever attempted! Save one blanket, anyway. But it was a granny square blanket, so technically it was a ton of little pieces, not one large one.
You might have seen my post about the rectangle shawl I found at a thrift store:
I noted how simple the design was, and even made a little diagram. And I thought to myself “maybe if I’m ever feeling really ambitious, I’ll make a crochet shawl. Mayyyybe.”
Well, I got that feeling about a month ago and decided to just do it!!
Basically, I’m making 2 gigantic rectangles, then sewing them together. I’m about 3/4 done with the first one and starting to slowly lose my mind.
I’m doing the whole thing in single crochet…
But it was the only stitch that flowed how I wanted it to, so I had no choice! I played around with different stitch counts and accent stitches for a couple of days before committing. And it’s not taking as long as I feared.
The pattern itself will fit s-l sizes, I think. It’s not a restrictive style at all. I will definitely have lots of different sized people try it on when it’s finished to be sure!!
That’s all I have for today, hopefully I’ll have another update in a couple more weeks!
