This pineapple shawl is a gift for my sister-in-law. She lives in Norway, the chilly, rainy, snowy Norway! So I hope this shawl will keep her warm and cozy!
I loved this pattern. In addition to written instructions it has good-quality symbol charts (even though I no longer have trouble following most written patterns, symbol charts still would be my preferred option).
In the original pattern, Pima cotton was used, but I went with a wool blend yarn. I used Wool-Ease by Lion Brand Yarns. My finished shawl is about the same size as the one in the pattern; however, I did not complete all the rows as my gauge was bigger.
I really like that instead of traditional fringe, this shawl has cute round “coins” hanging from chains. They make such an interesting and unusual look.
Notice the sweet little cushion made of burlap and lace. It was made by a blogging friend Stephanie, who writes The Enchanting Rose. Stephanie also has an Etsy shop, where she sells her beautiful creations.
My lovely wicker chair modeled the shawl for you today. That chair was a left-over furniture piece that our previous home owners left for us. How sweet of them!
Ahhh, such a cozy little place to read a book or do some needlework.
And here are some shawl patterns from my shop:
