We’re at the third week mark in the Pineapples for Everyone Shawl CAL. Last week, I shared progress pictures of the first repeat of the shawl (rows 9-14). From this point forward, you’ll just be repeating rows 9-14 until your shawl is the size you’d like (or until you run out of yarn).
Here’s my shawl after 20 rows (two repeats of rows 9-14).
I love the way this new version is coming along. I’m looking forward to changing the colors soon, so I can introduce the Galler Yarns Inca Eco in Raspberry.
Several crocheters have already made multi-color versions of the shawl, and I’m sharing pictures of their Ravelry projects with permission.
yarnpumpkin made her entire shawl in one variegated yarn and then added fringe in a complementary solid. This is a fun way to add color without worrying about weaving in the ends for color changes within the shawl.
ctarski‘s Midnight Pineapples is the original multi-color Pineapples for Everyone Shawl – she made her project during the pattern test. Unfortunately, she didn’t note her color changes and has since donated the shawl. But from looking at the pictures, it seems like she changed colors for Rows 13, 14, 9, and 10 and then returned to the original color.
For Black67‘s Glamourous Pineapples, she changed colors for Rows 13 and 14 in each of her final two complete repeats.
Each of these projects showcases a different creative way to change colors. How many colors will you use for your shawl?
