Sidewalk Shawl from Red Heart

First, may I present to you the Sidewalk Shawl from Red Heart.

Look at this gorgeous Pineapple pattern! I haven’t made anything with that pattern before and I am hooked (HA!).  The shawl made up really fast.  I did all the crochet in one afternoon and added the fringe the following morning!

When the pattern first came out, it used Bamboo Ewe yarn from STITCH NATION by Debbie Stoller. But, since then that yarn has been discontinued.  You can still make the shawl though using any aran or worsted weight yarn and an H hook.

For my shawl, I used Loops and Threads Value Pack yarn in Dark Grey. I can’t find it on the Michael’s website. It must be only available in stores.
