I’m so happy with the results of this design. Ever since I took part in the Winterlight KAL a few months ago, I’ve been wanting to create a similarly shaped shawl in crochet, showing off the amazing yarn that I picked up from Circus Tonic Hand Dyed Yarns. I still have four skeins of this glorious yarn that is waiting patiently to become something special, but that’s a story for another day…
I’ve named the shawl after my dear friend Miriem, who has been in The Top Five for almost 20 years now! This is a girl who has routinely gone above and beyond what you could possibly expect any friend to do. Let’s just say, if there are bodies to be buried, it’s Miriem that I’m calling.
About the pattern:
It is worked in rows, on the bias. The base stitch is a half double crochet (HDC). However, it is a deep HDC. Meaning, each HDC stitch goes around the regular top two loops, and also around the 3rd loop at the front of the stitch. This removes the line that rows of HDC stitches tend to create, making the design truly reversible.
What you’ll need:
Almost 800 metres of 4ply (sock) weight yarn. I used yarn from Circus Tonic Handmade; to catch shop updates, I highly recommend following Hannah on Instagram as yarn sells out in a heartbeat. I also recommend checking the sock yarns on both LoveCrochet.com* and Wool Warehouse* as their selections are fantastic.
