Burgundy Pineapple Shawl

Here in California autumn will arrive no sooner than October, but I’m very much looking forward to it. I have this beautiful shawl to keep me warm and cozy on chilly autumn evenings.



My mom crocheted this shawl earlier this year. Since I already have two shawls that my mom made, I tried to sell this one on Etsy. I didn’t have much luck, and I’m actually glad. One day I realized that no other person will value and cherish all the work and love my mom had put into this shawl as much I do. So I removed the shawl from my Etsy listings.

I believe the pattern was from a Russian crochet magazine (usually that’s where my mom gets her patterns from), but I don’t know which one exactly.

  3. How beautiful and even more so that it is made by your mom. One of these days I need to make one, I can imagine how lovely to be wrapped in. Perfect for those slightly cooler days. Have a great day.
