When I first signed up for Ravelry, I accidently purchased a crochet pattern: the Crocus Bud Shawl. For some reason, I had missed the fact that patterns could be for either knitting or crochet... and I only knew the former. I promised myself that one day I would learn to crochet just so I could make the shawl.
Well, I didn't end up learning to crochet just for that pattern, but I did instantly run and dust it off. I was happy to discover that it was a fairly easy pattern and consisted of stitches that were similar to my first crochet lesson. I busted out a sock yarn from my stash (as I just don't have the motivation to make a pair of socks) and whipped out this shawl... Unfortunately, I didn't have enough yarn to make a long, drapey shawl, however once it was blocked, it still made a nice scarf.
I really enjoyed working on the pattern though so I'm ready to cast it on with some lace weight yarn I've been saving for a similar project.
