Free Lacey Crochet Project

Blogged under Around the Web,Free Craft Projects by Tammy on Sunday 22 June 2008 at 9:26 am

What’s old is new it seems. I’ve seen a good number of shawl patterns around the web and in magazines lately. I remember making shawls and wearing them back in the 70s and early 80s, usually over a spaghetti strapped sun dress, but I just can’t see myself in one now, the dress or the shawl. Maybe it’s because I’m a native Floridian and it’s 90 degrees outside right now or maybe it’s due to my recent up-grade to bifocals. I’m a tad more sensitive about the whole “granny” appearance these days!

However, while I’m not real keen on the shawl fashion trend I’ve been seeing, I love the lacey pattern of this one designed by the Crochet Dude, who happens to have this free project available at Coats & Clark. I could see this same pattern used for a vest or a sweater you could wear over a little t-shirt.

Am I alone in my aversion to shawls? Or am I just not fashion-forward any more?
