When I submitted the original design last year for the Summer 2016 issue of Crochet! Magazine, it was an incredible honor to receive the email telling me it was accepted. The Tori Crescent Shawl is my very first time being featured in a magazine, and I couldn’t be happier! What better way to celebrate than to have a Crochet-Along right?
The design is a fun and easy project to crochet. You’ll love the intentional design of the pattern because I kept in mind that you are going for style and don’t want to be bothered with continually worrying about it falling off your shoulders. It will stay in place leaving your mind and hands free from worry!
Let’s get to the business of details for the upcoming CAL!
- We will officially kick off the Tori Crescent Shawl Crochet-Along on April 2, 2016 (around 10 am CST)…..so a week from today! I’m hoping that will give you enough time to get your subscription (if you don’t already have one) and buy the yarn.
