There are too many amazing projects in this year's Interweave Crochet Accessories for us to pick just one for our crochet-along. We were all admiring the shawls featured in this issue, and each of us had a different favorite, and each of us wanted to make our favorite for the CAL! To avoid any tension, it seemed the best course of action was to let us each have our way and lead our own CAL for the shawl of our choice. With a little friendly competition thrown in.

Each of us will attempt to recruit the most participants for our pattern of choice, and the shawl teams will compete for the most finished shawls by the close of the CAL. The pattern with the most finished shawls at the end wins, and one lucky participant, chosen randomly, will win a special prize!

 

Frostpane Wrap by Aparna Rolfe

This gorgeous half-circle shawl increases with a lovely web-like V-stitch pattern. The Jade Sapphire Lacey Lamb yarn is soft and drapes like a dream. Size 8 seed beads dot the stitches like dewdrops for some added weight and glamor. The beads are added as you go with a small hook, so no need to pre-string them.

Description Inspired by frost spreading across a windowpane on a cold winter night, this shawl is worked in lighter-than-air yarn.  Sparkling crystal beads complete the frosty look of this surprisingly warm ethereal wrap.
