Makings - Crochet Nordic Shawl Ta-da

Monday, 15 June 2015

This weekend I finished off my Nordic Shawl.


And it's just as beautiful as I hoped it would be.






The pattern is by Annette who blogs at My Rose Valley and you can buy it on Etsy here.



I've seen quite a few different colour variations of this shawl on Instagram, all of them equally pretty,  and although I didn't use the exact shades in the original pattern, I did base my choices on them.







I used Stylecraft Special DK in the colours: parchment (as the main colour), cream, fondant, candy floss, turquoise, sherbert and sage.

I love the prettiness of them all together and definitely need to think of a project that uses them all together again to use up what I have left over.









The shawl has such a simple, vintage feel to it, and the scalloped border finishes it off perfectly.

















I added a few more rows to the main part of the shawl as I wanted to be sure that there was plenty snuggling room in it.


It should be the perfect accessory for a hebridean summer's evening!
