Pineapple Shawl

A couple of weeks ago I found a crochet pineapple stitch table cloth that had to be a shawl in my eyes.  SAM_1676

I had to take several stabs at it to get this project to look like something.  I was starting to think that it really didn’t want to be anything but a table cloth.  Basically I’ve done about 2 hours of pinning and sewing and about 4 hours of ripping stitches to get it thus far.

The next stage will be to hem the two layers of lining and I’ll get to that when I get home.

The inside layer is a pink velvet.  I’m liking the look of it so much that I may have to turn the edge and make a “lapel” so that shows.  Those decisions will be made in the final trimmings and closures stage, which I hope wont take too much time.
