Plaid is the New Black
Plaid is the New Black Shawl
Designed by Natalie Larson for The Fiber Factor Challenge 6 and skacel collection, Inc.
This shawl is super easy to make - the vertical stripes are added after the body of shawl is completed using a crochet hook and laddering up. Tutorials will be online every Monday in June! Join us in The Fiber Factor Forum for a knit-a-long with prizes sponsored by Skacel.
