My first ever shawl..!

Dear people,

First of all let me start by wishing all my blogger friends a very happy holiday season. Which ever part of the world you are in and what ever manner you are celebrating this season, hope it is going to be merry and filled with love, laughter and all the really matters!

I have something to show you today, a finished garment. This took me a LONGGGGGGGGgg time to make, mainly because I used a 3.00 mm hook whereas the pattern called for a 6.00mm. But, the result is so worth it! It is soo smooth and drapey and I love snuggling in it.

So here it is, my first every shawl!


The pattern in Mother of Bride shawl and the free pattern can be found HERE.

It really is a simple repeat of this shell stitch.





Particularly happy with the border. Did you like it? It was on my own, just let the hook and the yarn do the talking..



The shawl fully spread out...


Its been a while he was featured here :P He loves snuggling in my shawl and calls it his cosy blanket!







Thats it from me my dearies!

I have 2 weeks of holidays + kids @ home + cold brrrr cold weather + awesome sales + 2 colorful hooky things + lots of yummy food to keep me company.. Hope you are are more blessed than me :)

Love and more,
xxx

  16. Simply stunning - pattern and colours! i also think i like the 3mm much better after looking at the pattern on ravelry, you did the right thing by going with a much smaller hook as the result is so much more refined. cheers!

  25. I think this is Gorgeous. What a beautiful Shawl. I love the colors you chose and I know crocheting with a size 3.00mm Hook is a chore. I can no longer crochet that small my eyes just couldn't see it. But a 6 is much better, not great but better. I wish you many blessings Thanks for the beautiful post.
