Double the shawly goodness in August! We're featuring TWO different projects this month, so it truly is a CAKAL. Both patterns are FREE on Ravelry, linked below.
For those of you who crochet, our Crochet Socks teacher, Sarah Kukuchek, wrote a pattern for a sister-shawl to the Multnomah ('Mulblahblah' was our KAL a few months back). I am pleased to feature Sarah's lovely pattern as our Crochet-a-Long for August.

This month's Knit-a-Long will be the Springtime Bandit. This pattern recommends using 400yds of Aran-weight yarn and size 8 needles, but I'll be making mine on size 5 needles with fingering weight yarn (still just 400yds, though I'll be doing a few more repeats of the pattern). This is why shawls are so awesome: they are SUPER versatile.

As a reminder, our CAKAL groups meet Sundays form 1-4pm, though of course you're welcome to bring your project in on Tuesdays or Fridays (or any time at all).
