Want a relaxing crochet shawl with a beautiful repeat? I mean, you can't say no to that, right? When I was on the WeCrochet website, something that happens a lot, I was looking at these two colors of yarn and thought they would go beautiful together as a shawl. So they jumped right onto the delivery truck, and I stalked the mailman until I could have the pretties to whip up the Hawthorne Tonal Crochet Shawl.
I've been into the PBS Series Victoria lately. It's become my favorite show along with Call the Midwife and Downton Abbey. Sometimes I just need an escape in the evenings to relax, crochet, and watch a good TV show. It is a sanity saver. You feel me, right?
I've been enjoying the fingering weight yarn for the summer season. So much so, I don't want the season to end. And my favorite fingering weight yarns are the hand-dyed ones, if you haven't had a chance to use any of the Hawthornes yet, start with the Speckled or the Tonal.

Hawthorne Tonal Crochet Shawl Notes:
The Hawthorne Shawl is crocheted in a triangle shawl shape with easy and relaxing stitch repeat sections using two colors of yarn.
Even though the instructions are labeled RS and WS for clarity, the shawl is reversible.
Placing a marker in the Ch 2 space can be helpful to keep track of the center increase stitch.
When changing between colors the type of stitches used also changes, if needed adjust the tension to prevent any change in gauge.
And a few more points:
Color A: Hawthorne Speckle Hand Painted in colorway Spark - 1 Hank
Color B: Hawthorne Fingering Kettle Dye in colorway Slate - 1 Hank
If a larger shawl is desired, add additional repeats, but remember, you will need one more hank of each color of yarn.
