Releasing this crochet pattern today to celebrate the beauty of the world around us on this Earth DAY! The discount code is given to all my Insta-Followers [in one of my Insta-posts that you saved recently].
I love thinking that crocheters/knitters create beautiful things in the name of sustainability, because we reduce waste and lessen environmental harm. I do prefer crocheting/knitting to sewing because we know how to reuse reclaimed yarns if our projects were not successful or just got out of fashion – thus, our knitted/crocheted handmade items can be utilized for their full life cycle. We save our planet this way! ?.
P.S. I would not donate handmade garments if yarn could be reused – they might end up in a landfill or donated to impoverished areas.
This beautiful crochet shawl can be worn as a stunning wedding piece that will gracefully drape over your shoulders, a triangular lacy pareo while you are heading to the beach, or a triangular Christening shawl.
