I’m heading to Wisconsin and Kansas in a couple of weeks for a little vacation with the kids, and for my cousin Johanna‘s wedding to her fiancé Ryan. (Aren’t they cute?)

It is still quite hot, I understand, “down south,” (i.e. anywhere south of Alaska), so I’ll be bringing my Hemp Shawlette:

It’s soft, but not warm, like even a lacy shawl made in wool would be, and it covers the shoulders well. The shawl is crocheted top down in “raglan” style–meaning that there are four increase points. The shaping means that the shawl fits nicely on your shoulders.

I designed this shawl for Lana Knits using their lovely Allhemp6, a lightweight, soft hemp designed for garments. It works up quickly with treble v-stitches and a simple edging. I haven’t decided what I’m wearing at the wedding yet… but I do know I’ll wear the shawl. And now you can make one too, I’ve just listed the pattern for sale.

    I love your blog – your work is great! Where I live it is 40+C (108-118F) at the moment. I would love to live in a cooler place and actually wear/use my crocheted stuff!
