After returning from my holidays again and having put my shawl to good use again I have decided to make another one. This time for my mum.
I had a good look through my existing patterns but I found that a lot of shawl patterns are too light weight for what I had in mind. I wanted to create something that had a little warmth but not heavy weight.
I found this pattern for a Midsummer's Night Shawl on Interweave Store. It's just what I was looking for.
It is substantial enough to have some warmth but also not too heavy. The pattern is pretty easy to follow and has a really useful stitch diagram - actually after the first couple of rows I put the rest of the pattern to one side and just followed the diagram.
I am creating this using Adrafil Azzura 3 ply yarn, this is a 70% Wool and 30% acrylic mix. It is lovely and soft, east to work with and comes in a pretty good range of colours.
I've chosen to use shade 33 Turquoise. I've really only just stared with this project, but so far so good - I think its going to work out quite nicely, fingers crossed anyway.
