New Crochet Designs - Part 2

I'm so excited that my first design for Interweave Crochet is now available. The BFF shawl is in the new Accessories issue which I'm assuming is now in the shops in the US. I've not received my copy yet but the listings are up on Ravelry and it was a great surprise to log on to find the photos of my new design.
 The BFF shawl is worked in a lacy stitch pattern which is easy to crochet in the gorgeous Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend Fino. I love Fino! It's great to crochet with. And I'm revealing another design later this week using Fino for a new knit design.
As you can see from the photos, the BFF shawl can be used as a shawl or a scarf. Wrap it around your neck on your way to wrok in the mornings and if you get chilly in the office, wrap it around your shoulders to keep warm.
 This shawl is worked as a rectangle and you can easily vary the width and/or length if you prefer. You start in the centre and work half the shawl in one direction then go back to the centre and work the second half in the other direction. This makes it easy to manage your yarn supply.
 I love the hat the model is wearing too but I'm afraid i don't know which pattern that is, it's not mine. But if you buy the magazine I'm sure it'll tell you.

You can see all the designs in the Accessories issue here. So many pretty designs.
