Part 1 has been released today.  See link at the bottom of this post.  The pattern will be free during the CAL, but you must use a coupon code.  The code is LOVEMOM.  Check back next week for part 2.

Introducing an additional beauty for our shawl series.  Our lovely designer of the Warmth Shawl,  Aminata Ndiaye,  has graciously shared another pattern with us.  The Layover Shawl is a very pretty, light and lacy shawl that you will love to wear or share, for the summer evenings or any time a whisper of softness is needed.   Aminata created this shawl on her way to Nigeria for her neices’s wedding, during long airtime, and layovers.  The pattern will be free during the CAL, but will become a paid pattern afterwards.  Be sure to download your copy each week of the CAL.  The pattern is in 4 parts, and part 1 will be released on May 9th.  The last part will be on May 30th.

Aminata’s love of crochet began in her home country of Senegal, where an old childhood friend’s mother taught her.  She practiced by using old French and English doilies as references and design inspirations.  This passion for crochet has continued since her move to the United States.  She has now created many beautiful patterns, which you can find on her Ravelry page.

The materials used for this shawl are 2 ply soft yarn and a G/4 mm hook.  Aminata used 5 skeins of Lion Brand Vanna’s Glamour,  but you can use anything similiar.  See intro and the story behind the pattern.

  1. Hi. I want to join this CAL but the link doesn’t work. It was the same with Emely CAL. I get the info page for yarn and start date. Any suggestions? Thanks
