A Mother’s Day Shawlette
Shannon Squire’s Crimson and Clover!
As I was working this pattern, I couldn’t get Joan Jett’s version of “Crimson and Clover” out of my head, and I thought… wouldn’t it be great to have a pattern offered in both stockinette and garter, so even though it’s basically the same pattern, versions are markedly different in appearance? Knitted in Blue Moon’s decadent Worthy or BFL Fingering, on bigger needles, it’s lots of bang for your buck, and the perfect gift for that special mother in your life.
