New Free Pattern: Asticou Terrace

When we introduced the latest “undyed” color of Acadia, mountain ash, I knew I immediately wanted to make something with the 4 naturals in the line: egret, sand, driftwood, and mountain ash.

I messed around with a bunch of different stitch patterns and ideas, and quickly settled on using crochet to make a triangular shawl. The modern yarn and triangular shape paired with the classic granny square stitch makes for a really great accessory that adds a little bit of punch to your outfit without going over the top kitsch. (I’m actually wearing it as I type!)

The Granny Square Triangle is not a “new” invention of mine, but I loved the idea of combining a classic crochet technique with a modern yarn and updated shape, which is how the Asticou Terrace pattern came to be.

The shawl is designed to use as much of each skein as possible – I’ve done the math/calculations for you, but really, the directions could also read “work until you run out of yarn!”

    Love! Have been thinking it was time I did more crochet; this pattern is what I want to do. Have ordered the yarn, can’t wait! Thank you for such a great pattern. I don’t suppose you could answer an unrelated question – the model’s skirt. It’s really lovely – where is it from?

    That’s so pretty! I have a lotta love for crochet anyway, but this is beautiful!
