Amy has been crocheting for 11 years, but it wasn’t until recently that she started designing and writing her own patterns.

She started her blog, Another Mum Fights the Dust, as a place to inspire, connect, and encourage other moms on their journey. Crocheting has helped Amy to maintain her sense of self and gives her a break at the end of a long day. She hopes she can inspire you as you come along on the journey of finding your creativity and fighting the dust day after day.
Crochet Pattern by Another Mum Fights the Dust
The Vintage Lines Shawl is a beautiful crochet triangle shawl pattern that can easily be customized for any season. Make it with a light-weight cotton for a cool summer shawl or use a warm wool-blend yarn for a winter scarf. The options are endless!
For this shawl pattern I used Paintbox Yarns Simply DK yarn in the Stormy Grey and Washed Teal colorways. This yarn is perfect for cool spring days to give you a little bit of warmth. It is super soft and easy to work with, and it comes in a variety of colors to choose from.
The pattern gives instructions for the color changes as pictured, but feel free to get creative and change colors wherever you want.
The stitch repeats in this pattern give the shawl a beautiful texture that is sure to get you compliments wherever you go! If you love the texture of this shawl, you will also love the Vintage Lines Cowl pattern available for free on Another Mum Fights the Dust Blog.
I hope you enjoy this pattern!
