Crochet Pattern: Nearly Autumn ShawlBy Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 15 Comments
|Autumn is the most enjoyable season of the year, in my opinion! Time to start thinking of working on fall puzzles while sipping on a cup of hot apple cider. Though it’s still a few weeks away, already we have felt the weather changing and I couldn’t help turning my thoughts toward the season! What I had in mind for this project was a small bandana-like shawl to accessorize a simple long sleeve shirt. Perfect for fall! If you use Homespun like I did, be sure to read the tip at the bottom of the pattern. It was very helpful to learn. Try it out and tell me what you think!|
