This is the Petals & Leaves Shawl that was published in YARN 8 – Tea Room, a Book-a-zine by Scheepjes, that was released last week. This book-a-zine includes 16 different crochet and knit patterns, all different but equally gorgeous. Im super proud to be a part of this publications together with all these great designers.
The caption of this shawl in the book-a-zine reads:
“Luxury and romance are a match made in heaven. Echoing floral patterns, this lace work shawl is enhanced by an ombré colour effect.”
And yes, the Scheepjes Whirligig yarn is really luxurious both to touch and look at. I used the colour 201 Grey to Lavender for my shawl, starting from the middle of the cake. If you use the same gauge as indicated in the pattern you will get a generous sized and warm shawl that measures 200 cm wide and 145 cm along each side.
Make sure to block your finished shawl to enhance both drape and pattern before you use it. The natural fibers in this yarn blocks very well and wet blocking is recommended.
