Sometimes when I am creating a piece, I am unsure of what the outcome will be. Unsure if I will even like it…seriously, this happens a lot with my projects! BUT, Leona….Leona I love and I can’t believe this this was one of those projects that I was unsure of until I took the final photos. Seeing this one done and in pictures made me fall in love and I am so excited to be bringing this Striped Crochet Shawl Pattern to you! I hope you love making this color blocked shawl pattern as much as I did!

The Whims Merino Yarn I used is light and springy and creates perfect stitches. The contrast of the Mustard and the Charcoal is better than I could have imagined for this color blocked shawl pattern! I hope you love Leona too and I can’t wait to see your color choices!

Dont forget! The Leona Shawl is part of the Furls Blog Hop, a year long event that will have a total of 52 free knit and crochet patterns! That’s one a week! You can read my post “Furls Blog Hop” to know more or go right to the Furls Post!
