One repeat done...Spider Stitch Shawl!

So I have a good start on my Spider Stitch Shawl for the CAL. I am using Naturally Caron's Country in the colorway Spice House. It says Fall to me. This is a lovely, affordable blend with 25% Merino wool and 75% Microdenier (which is a big word that means extra fine) Acrylic, making it machine wash and dry. I am thinking the wool will add to the warmth, and the easy care fibers will make this something I will wear often. How is yours coming along? Remember, we have a Ravelry group, where everyone can show off their work!
Happy Hooking,
Renee'

Beautiful and unusual shawl. I just learned a couple of weeks ago from a reader that that motif has a name and is called "spider"!

I should have clarified that in that motif I see a sun, a star, something bright and celestial. Definitely, not a black critter ... however halloween-ish:)

Kirsten, this pattern in particular, while it is my design, is actually owned by Caron Yarns, International. I do have a free pattern on www.crochetrenee.com right now and do keep one up there. Those patterns are owned by me and you are more than welcome to share them. Thanks for your interest!

Francesca, Thanks for your comments. Funny that you see something celestial in the pattern. One of the participants in the crochet-along for the shawl named it something like "Celestial Star Shawl" or something like that.
