Autumnal CAL for p/hop

October 1, 2015 No Comments by Heidi

With a dodgy shoulder and a cyst that decided to make a reappearance, I didn’t think I’d get this CAL going at all so hadn’t chatted about it. I had great intentions of making a sample in September and some video tutorials but my body had other ideas. So as with so many other things in life at the moment, I’ll just do it as it comes along.

The October Leaves shawl uses Tunisian crochet linked double (treble UK) crochets to create a lovely mix between a solid and lacy rows. I’m using Ohut Pirkkalanka that I picked up from Midwinter Yarns at Firbres east. It’s a 3ply and I’m using a 5.5mm hook as the yarn feels like just a step up from a heavy lace weight. Have something heavier in your stash, a lovely 4ply perhaps? A 6mm hook will do the trick.

If you’d like to join me in showing the October Leaves shawl pattern from p/hop a bit of love then head over to their site and download the pattern and do please leave a donation. The CAL starts today and ends on October 31st.

The link isn’t obvious, especially if you haven’t been fully caffeinated yet. It’s the text highlighted below that appears as black text on the site.
