My Pattern Experience: Doris Chan's All Shawl {crochet pattern review}

Today's "My Pattern Experience" is brought to you by Doris Chan's "All Shawl" crochet pattern.  It is a pattern that has 4 different ways to complete it, which if you were daring, could turn into a million and one!  I love this shawl pattern.  It's so versatile.  You can take any piece of this variety pack pattern and make yourself a wonderfully unique shawl.  For this shawl, I used a super large hook- a K, though in retrospect, I almost would like to see it worked up with something larger, like a P.  The trim portion is gorgeous (though would have benefited if I had time to block it before these pictures).  The best part was that it worked up super quick!!  I had this shawl done, from start to finish, in about 3 hours, with lots of interruptions (I have children, and it gets hard to have a solid block of time).  I can't wait to try out some of the other variations with the pattern, but I just had to share this with you!

I love the open look that is created with the edc and large hook!

Isn't this edging gorgeous??

I like to wear shawls all wrapped up around my neck, and the variegated yarn causes a lovely effect with this one!!
