Notes: This shawl was so easy and so fast! Had I not gotten sick while working on this, I would have knocked this out in a few nights. The pattern was fairly easy to follow – except for the lace. There was one part that wasn’t particularly clear to me, but after looking at a couple of close-up photos on Raverly I figured it out (I don’t want to give away too much detail on the pattern because it isn’t free > its $2.50 so you gotta pay to play!).
Although this is a worsted weight shawl, it’s very, very airy and light. It’s far too cold for something this light right now. It’s freezing and raining! I do think it will be great for church Sundays. The AC is always going full blast in that place and it’s always nice to have something to cover the shoulders.
And can I just say, I LOVE THE COLOR COMBINATION!!! Yellow and grey is very trendy these days and I’m a big fan. It’s very modern and crisp and I love it.
This is another one of those great, fast gift projects. It’s very fast, doesn’t take a ton of yarn, the color combinations are endless and you get beautiful results.
Oh, if you don’t know how to crochet, GET ON IT. This is great beginner’s project and any experienced crocheter can help you with the edging if you too find it confusing.
