Showing off again Part II

Did another pineapple shawl. This one was done with Red Heart SS Light Fucshia with a "K" hook. It's a bit bigger than the pink one I did. (pink one was made with an "I" hook and RH Giant worsted weight yarn...yarn was a bit thinner than the Super Saver yarn)

The fucshia shawl took me about 7 hours to complete, and it's my favorite (until I can get my hands on some purple yarn...WalMart was out of the color I wanted the other day)

The fucshia one drapes a lot better than the first one and feels a lot warmer.

This is definately one of my most favorite things that I've made so far. I've always wanted to make something with pineapples in the design...ever since I was a little girl and saw the crocheted thread pineapple pincushion that my grandmother used to have hanging on the wall in her kitchen. (I have THAT pattern too)

Here's a close up of the fucshia one

Love the pattern and the color. Did you create the pattern or is that available somewhere. I think I would like one for the front of my fireplace (that I don't use) but it would look nice. Grammyt03@sbcglobal.net

I got the pattern online. It's originally a doily pattern. I saw someone on Crochetville had made it with yarn and a large hook to make it into a shawl, so I did the same thing. The pattern is at this link Chair Back Doily Pattern.
