I just finished crocheting a shawl that's pink, fluffy, and light like cotton candy.
It's so delicate and pretty! Here it is worn bandanna style...
And, a more traditional shawl style...
So light and airy.
I used the South Bay Shawlette pattern that I've used many times.
The mohair in the Crystal Palace Kid Merino yarn transforms it and creates a very different look.
I used a size "G" crochet hook. Crocheting with this yarn was a challenge whenever I had to rip back. The yarn tends to lock itself together and pulling stitches out sometimes seems impossible.
I had to rip back a few times because of silly mistakes. I was worried a couple of times that I wouldn't be able to pull it back to the mistake. Luckily, I was able to...with lots of patience.
This was a fun project because of the results and that I was able to de-stash two balls of yarn!
However, I won't want to wear it because of the mohair. It's a little itchy to me.
So, I will need to find a home for this beauty. If anyone is interested in buying this, let me know.
I won't be charging much for it. I'd just like to find someone who will enjoy it. :-)
