WIP – Coral Catastrophe Crochet Shawl

Last week I introduced you to the beautiful new Scheepjes Whirl that I’m using, I truly love this colourway!


Now I’m almost done!  As I write this, I have about a row to go.  It’s hard to know that I have to leave it until later on to get it finished, I can hear it calling me!


I’m crocheting a shawl, and it’s a joy to make.  A great travel project, Netflix crochet, and also perfect for a beginner who’s ready to take it to the next level.  Not only that, it’s a lovely size and will be great to wrap around your neck or throw over your shoulders when it’s a bit chilly.


Isn’t this gradient to die for!  I love the light, but I really love the transition to the darker, richer coral.

Thanks to all of you who reached out to me with an offer to test!  The pattern is busy being worked on by a lovely group of people, and will be ready to publish by the end of the month.

To prepare yourself, you’ll need your own whirl!

Scheepjes as always has the full list of whirly retailers on their website, plus you can check out some of the retailers I like to recommend:

Wool Warehouse* ships all over the world, and so does Deramores*.

Caro’s Atelier* is my local yarn store here in Almere.

Black Sheep Wools* is the largest bricks and mortar yarn store in the UK, and Knotty House* has North America covered.

In South Africa you can’t go past Be Inspired, and in Australia head to Yarnish.

You can also check out my designer store at Deramores.com – it’s where I stock some of my designs, and this one will be added when it’s finished too!

Come back in a few days, when it’s all blocked, for the reveal!
