I started this project to get rid of some stash yarn in a quick and easy way!
I finally finished it yesterday after a few weeks of doing a bit here and there and not rushing it, basically.
It’s a very simple granny square crochet shawl and used 3 balls of yarn. I think I’m going to donate it or give it away as I already have a shawl in the same pattern that I made a couple of years ago which still works just fine!
The pattern I used was from a book called Shabby Chic Crochet by Agnieszka Strycharska. And I’ve done it 4 times now, using different weights and brands of yarn and it always works up well.
It’s actually a really good baby yarn which I’ve made into baby hats before (in different shades). It’s soft and has just a hint of sparkle in.
It’s called Baby Twinkle Prints DK by James C. Brett and you can get it from my favourite online knitting shop The Knitting Network (who also use eco-friendly methods of packaging for all their orders).
As I said, I’ve done this project several times with no problem, but can you see my tension changed about halfway through? That never happened on the other shawls!
I think I might have either crocheted looser or tighter or it was just a different ball of wool.
Either way it’s not too noticeable, although as the maker, it stands out like a sore thumb to me!
I’m quite pleased with this quick little project.
I have 5 tops that I’m either knitting or crocheting on the go at the moment, as well as a Halloween granny square blanket and sewing together a leather handbag. So, it was a nice break!
