I’m so in love with this shawl. It makes me happy to wear it; the colour is gorgeous, the merino blend is soft, warm and snuggly.
It’s elegant and light, and adds a splash of glamour to my outfit. But it’s also perfect to just wrap around my neck on a chilly day when I’m cycling to the shops.
I’ve added the design to Ravelry, for sale at 5.45EUR. If you head to Instagram and follow me, you can grab yourself a 50% discount until May 1st. Just check the details in the Emma Shawl photos I post there. You can also click the Instagram links on the sidebar to the right.
For the design I used a gorgeous hand dyed fingering/4ply (sock) yarn from Craftfulness, but you can use any fingering weight yarn, as long as there is about 420 metres on the skein. I also used a hand dyed yarn I bought from Textiel Werk Wol en Zo (in Dutch, but they speak English fabulously) a long time ago.
It’s also a lovely quick design – you can easily whip it out in a couple of evenings in front of Game of Thrones. Once you get going, the design all but crochets itself.
And don’t you just love the beautiful crystal shawl clip? It’s about a hundred years old, and belonged to my Aunt Hilda. I’ve loved the clips (and matching earrings) as long as I can remember, so it makes me incredibly happy to have and be able to use them.
Enjoy, I hope you love it. I do, I’ve made lots already!
