Grand Canyon Shawl

I adore shawls!

With this pattern, I kind of worked backwards in my design. First I picked the yarn. This pattern uses the Lion Brand Heartland yarn. This is the first time I’ve ever worked with this and I tell you what…I don’t think I’ve ever felt a softer yarn. Hands down. And I’m not an affiliate for Lion Brand.

I have to laugh since I just finished crocheting this Angled Clusters Scarf and the temperature today is in the upper 70’s! Last week we were cozy in our sweaters or hoodies, which prompted me to choose this project.

It just goes to show how unpredictable Pennsylvania weather can be.

That’s also one of the reasons that I don’t pack away my families clothes based on the season. I’ve heard that people from other places and climates do that, but honestly, it would be a waste of time for us. We need a variety of clothing categories year round.

Hey everyone!

I’ve been seeing these super chunky cowls since last year (I may be late to the party…lol) and I’ve been wanting to make my own.
