Fiesta is a comfy crochet shawl with a brightly colored edge border for pizazz. The border is easier than it appears, and a great use of odds and ends! Who doesn’t like a nice shawl? Whether for warmth, comfort, prayer or fashion, there’s something special about wrapping up… especially when handmade. Quite easy, and crochets faster than you’d expect, thanks to the top-down construction to keep things interesting. Try another color theme, subtract colors, or use a variegated yarn for the body for an entirely different look!
