Crocheting a Shawl

DSC_0061-th
Have you ever visited Tanya over at Taniwa? Back in October she had a post on "Crocheting a Shawl" . It was so lovely, I had to make one. I only did 7 repeats of the central motif and probably should have done 9 to make the shawl longer. I wish there had been enough yarn to make the fringe longer, but I still really like this shawl.

  1. Very pretty! I have come to appreciate shawls in the past few years. In my youth, they were only accessories for formal dances, not really for warmth. Now, I almost always have one over the shoulders. It seems to be just the right amount of cozyness!

  2. When I saw this on Tanya's blog, I was almost tempted to take up crocheting, even though I don't really know how. Yours turned out great.

  3. Whoa you sure did crochet a Shawl! I'm a crochet person. I'd love to make a shawl like this. Well, I don't know. I better look at the pattern before I say that. I know I'd love to WEAR THIS SHAWL. For sure. I'd wear it, too. I'm just that kinda gal.

    Gosh Paula. This is beautiful. Wouldn't it make a lovely gift, too. My family is Mexican which is to say - we have some hx of wearing these as regular clothing. There are people to give this to. I better stop before I make guilt myself into something...

  7. This is so sweet! My grandmother always made me shawls and ponchos so I always think of her when I see items like this. Thanks for triggering the memories!

  9. I think it's lovely - I love the lacy look. I saw a woman with a bright red shawl on in church today and was reminded again how glad I am that shawls are back "in." blessings, marlene

  14. This is so pretty, I haven't crocheted in a while and haven't thought of using it in a shawl. I think it would be easier for me than lace knitting.
