I have slowly been working on this hooded shawl/cape that I found HERE on ravelry.com designed by Linda Kaye Smith.
I decided to crochet it for this fall. I might get it finished in time, if not it will be good for next year.
So here is the lowdown on what I am using and how its turning out so far:
- I am using a size K bamboo handle crochet hook (link)
- I am using Wool-Ease Chunky in Walnut (link)
- I am using the pattern from Linda Kaye Smith, and this is the first time I have ever used a pattern so its been an experience figure things out.
I would get about 7 rows done and start all over because my count was not coming out right for stitches.
Now I have that mastered and I am doing really good. I am on my 22 row or my first half and I have used almost 2 skeins/balls. There are a total of 37 rows (if I remember correctly).
Please don’t ask about guage because I have no clue about this.
Here are some pics of what I have done so far and I used different lighting exposure so you can possibly see true colors. The darker brown picture is more realistic for color.
