The Crochet Project

My grandmother Doris was 5 feet tall, wore polyester dresses and sensible shoes. If you saw her and didn’t know her, you would assume she was just another unremarkable, sweet little old lady. You would be wrong.

Grandma was feisty and unexpected and this shawl is a small homage to her. Its stripes, short row wedges and alternating stitches should always keep you interested.
