Posing with my Shawlette! Ta-Dah!

Well, thank you all you lovely people for all your great comments on my last post - after reading them, I decided to carry on and finish the shawl - yay!!  Thank you especially to 'Anonymous' (who are you, oh helpful one?!) for suggesting a shawlette and ways I could wear it.  I carried on, and I finished it, and I love it!  (You were right!)


If anyone is interested in the details, here they are:

Yarn:  3 x 50g balls of Rowan Amy Butler Belle Organic Aran in Robin's Egg (Shade 209)
Hook:  6mm
Pattern:  here

The pattern is in Japanese and a symbol one - I've never used a pattern like that before, but I found it surprisingly easy.  (Maybe I was doing it completely wrong - who knows - I was happy anyway!)

I'm not sure what size hook I was supposed to use, and I didn't do the number of rows specified - I did as much as the yarn I had would allow.



I had a bit of a shawlette photo-shoot in the park... so here are more pictures!  Sorry for being a poser....!!!




I'll probably wear it like that quite a bit.  (Didn't really know what to do with my arms in these pictures - so if they look a bit random, that'll be why!)


I'll probably NOT wear it like this quite so often...!!  ;o)  (Had to be done....!)

This will be my August Monthly Make.  I'm glad I didn't rip it apart - I'm rather loving it.  It's very warm and cosy too.  I'm thinking I might crochet a brooch to hold it together in various positions.  If I do, I'll be sure to show you...!

  3. It's beautiful I'm glad you didn't give in. I think a crochet brooch would be a great addition for fastening it, what better excuse to make a crochet flower? x

  9. I love the shots, thanks for this, you look so happy with your shawlette. By the way, I want one but I have never made any crochet before, do you think it would be suitable for a beginner?
