Friday night I finished my True Blue Friend Shawl. This pattern can only be found in a Coats and Clark pattern book but it has many mistakes in the pattern. Luckily I have crocheted for so many years that I could tell by looking at the picture of it that the pattern was incorrect. This pattern is both knit and crochet. The inside part of it is knit and the outside shell ruffle is crochet.
Several of the women in my knitting class began this pattern. I am not sure where they are on theirs at this point because we took a small holiday break from the class. I do like it but I won’t use it as often as I would had I chosen a thinner yarn. I think the yarn is rather bulky and that is my fault entirely. If I had chosen a better yarn instead of using a heavier acrylic yarn and perhaps a different color I may have been happier with the finished product.
You can see more information about the shawl at the link below. I do not want to dissuade you from making the shawl but be aware that there are many mistakes in the pattern.
