Introducing the Acer Shawl


As I teach a lot, I understand the frustration newer crocheters have. They want beautiful patterns that give stunning results but find patterns difficult to follow – its all a bit scary. After lots of conversations with people who love the look of The Shawl Project book but don’t feel confident enough to tackle them I decided to create something special for them.

We decided to team up with the lovely folks at to bring you a pattern that is exclusive to them and will be supported by lots of tutorials on their blog and a CAL (Crochet A Long – an online group making the pattern all at the same time and helping each other through) so you can buy the pattern with confidence knowing that it is well within your capabilities. The tutorials and CAL start next month, keep tuned for more details of that here or on my facebook page and The Crochet Project facebook page.

Our intrepid testers (all confident with the stitches but not normally confident enough to tackle crochet patterns) have given us the thumbs up so we are sure you can do it too.

The pattern is available to download on love crochet now.



Of course if you are a confident crocheter, this pattern is still for you, its nice easy making, a simple soothing rhythm over a two row repeat and as it grows side to side you can stop when you run out of yarn/get bored/run out of time. Its written for DK or 4ply but can easily be adapted to any weight and the size can easily be changed too. Its great for using up a skein of something pretty and especially wonderful with self-striping sock yarns – or use it as a scrap project for left overs. It makes perfect gifting, simple, quick but very pretty.

    It’s stunning, especially in the top photo (which is beautifully styled as well). :)

    Good luck to all the CAL participants!
