Do you remember the Sunday Shawl CAL (Crochet Along) I was part of at the beginning of the year?
I made one which I renamed my Gypsy Shawl.
Whilst I was making it I knew that I would make another one (at least one!)
as it was such a lovely pattern to follow and crochet up. It also worked up super quick too!
This time I used Stylecraft Special DK as I had a few balls in navy and oddments in other bright colours.
I really wanted to go for a more "bohemian" look and so choose the brightest colours I could find
so that they would really pop against the navy.
I also wanted to add a bit more of the pattern at the bottom to add a little bit more length.
I am not sure how many more I did, I just kind of winged it!
When I felt it was long enough I went for the last two rows to finish it.
It took me about three days to make from start to finish ... how speedy is that?! It really is a very quick make and so enjoyable to do because of how it looks and because of how quickly it works up.
And ... I'm going to make another one!
I am taking this one a bit slower but have already selected Stylecraft Special DK in Meadow
and have started to hook it!
I think this time I am going to go for more delicate colours at the bottom -
perhaps mauves, lilacs, pale green ....
So watch this space as I'll let you know when that one is finished. Mind you, I do have a few other projects still on-going AND I plan to start a couple more KALs - this time a shawl and perhaps socks too (eek!!!)
Wish me luck!
