The Yarn

I had a hard time trying to find a yarn that worked for peridot. When I was planning out the design all the stores were still closed due to state regulations.

I tried looking online and ordering something that would work. The only problem was that I couldn’t get a clear enough idea of the color through my computer or phone screen.

Since I have a large stash of yarn in the house, I had to go take a peek of what I had. Turns out that a few years ago I bought 10 skeins of Brava Sport from Knitpicks/WeCrochet in the colorway Avocado. I still had 5 skeins, just the right color and the amount I would need.

The Pattern

The Peridot Shawl uses my favorite crochet stitch, the linked half double crochet. I used the Lhdc in my White Chocolate Ganache dishcloth pattern. With that FREE pattern, I also included a photo tutorial. The White Chocolate Ganache dishcloth is the perfect project to make if you’re not familiar with the Lhdc, find it HERE.
