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)

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.
