From our very own Stephanie of It's Crochet Oclock: Ame's Embrace is a triangular shawl that I have designed to honor my cousin Ame. Check out the complete story here!
It is a join as you go project which can be a little scary at first if you've never done it before. No need to fear: complete video tutorials are available!
Each element of the shawl has been created with purpose. Each small component is a bit that represents my sister-cousin and in essence, it is a way for each of you to feel the same love I am blessed to have from Ame for yourselves.
The lacework is my nod to her love of Irish Lace Crochet. No, it doesn’t look just like Irish Lace but, it’s kind of close. I tried my best not to make each section look perfect, as the webbing in Irish Lace never is.
Included in this digital pattern you will find several things to help you along your crafting journey: a placement chart, step by step photos for creating the motif as well as a motif by motif chart that will help you keep track of where you are in the process! (The video tutorials are free!! yay!)
This pattern was designed using the beautiful Eco-Lush yarn from Nurturing Fibres. Eco-Lush is a soft fingering weight blend : 60% cotton & 40% bamboo. It comes in a wide range of colors to choose from as well!
FULL VIDEO TUTORIALS ALSO AVAILABLE HERE!
To work the pattern you’ll need a minimum 8 balls of Nurturing Fibres Eco-Lush yarn, 9 if you prefer full fringe. (Go with full fringe! You know you wanna!) I used a 2.5 mm hook for the project so if you don’t have one of those you’ll need to get yourself one.
SPECIAL NOTE: the first month of proceeds from the sale of this pattern will all be donated to a co-worker of mine who was out of work for six weeks with Covid. We are only given 80 hours of Covid pay so she went an entire month without pay. She is the only earner in her household where she has custody of her two grandsons. We’re going to help buy those babies Christmas this year because as one would expect, crawling out of a hole generated by losing a month of pay is incredibly hard.
