Coraline in the Wine Country, the fourth crochet pattern in the series, is celebrating Coraline's sabbatical traveling the globe. A globe trekker in training, she still loves wearing her pumps on a bicycle and journaling by a water fountain.
Coraline in the Wine Country
She isn't using the internet right now and loves sending letters using pen and paper, doodling over mistakes. She wrote me a letter while wearing this shawl with her feet in the Vaillancourt Fountain! Get this. She is headed up to Mendocino and working her way through wine country. So far, she's been to Morocco, Times Square, and San Francisco on this journey. (Click each location to see the special items I made for her trip.)
Exciting UPDATE: We've recently updated this pattern with new colors and pictures. Check out the new Coraline in the Wine Country pattern here.

Hi Celine, I love this pattern. I am making this for my daughter who wants it in a dark gray. I will post a picture when I am done. I previously posted a few questions regarding the placement of certain stitches in the pattern. I have since resolved those issues. New question: Would the magic circle be appropriate to begin this pattern. I tried it but some how it didn't look right. I will be making a few more of the items in the Coraline Shawl series Thank you. Debbie Chance

Oh, that's wonderful, Debra! (Sorry I hadn't gotten back to you. I have so many lovely comments that sometimes it's hard to get to them every day. :) ) I tried the magic circle, and honestly, it just looked like a knot and kind of rolled in on itself or looked twisted. I love the magic circle, but you may have to put in extra effort on this one.

I love this pattern I want to make it for my mom. She is a larger woman, and I was wondering if I need to make it better and how? I'm fairly new at making large crochet products and was wondering how this shawl seems to be able to use as a "shawl" but also connected in the wrap style? Please help, my dad helped me pick out this pattern and we both know my mom we will love it. She has a breast cancer remission anniversary on Feb 15, and I'm hoping to make this for her.

Hi, Brandie ~ I would probably try continuing with the pattern sequence with one more skein, then try a border of some type to widen it. This pattern is very flexible and I'm sure you can make it work. Feel free to email me your pics and I can help with your progress. :)

I love this pattern! I have an Etsy shop. Coraline could I use your pattern to make shawls and sell them on my shop? Thanks
