April challenge – Reflections shawl

I came across this crochet pattern by Ana D on Ravelry, and it seemed to suit some yarn that I had in my stash admirably..

The variegated yarn is Kunstgarn which is a Danish sock yarn – 75% superwash wool 25% nylon. Mine is colour 28 which is apparently called ‘ceramic’. I bought some Scheepjes Our tribe which is 70% superwash merino 30% polyamide in colour 884 ‘Iris Garden’ as the base colour, and made the shawl on a 4mm hook. It took about 150g of the base colour and 100g of sock wool, and measures 130 x 66cm.

Now I have a difficult decision to make – do I wear it or sell it??

      I had selling it in mind when I started the project, but as it grew I grew to love it! We will see..
      First I would like to show it to the lovely lady who sold me the sock yarn.. I think she will be interested to see it being made into something other than socks!

        It’s always a privilege to see what people make with the yarn they bought from me. Thank you very much for taking the time. Loved the pattern and the colours are just gorgeous. Whenever I am in Plockton for the craft fair I will send people to the Lochalsh knitters workshop across the road.

      The coloured ‘bobbles’ are 2 treble 1 chain 2 treble all into the same stitch, then skip 3 and repeat. The plain rows in between are 1 chain 3 treble into the row below and repeat. If you are thinking of using it I can recommend buying the pattern, it is really clearly explained with a photo tutorial..
