saskia’ shawl

From the moment she saw my shawl, she wanted one.  Dear daughter of mine.

She wanted grey so I purchased Cascade Yarns, 220 Superwash wool in Jet #1913.  I love that yarn … they have beautiful bold colors.  And better you can wash it at 40F.  Since mine was a bit too small, I made hers bigger: skeins resulting in a gr shawl.  I used a 4.5 mm hook.

The pattern?  ‘Margaret’s Hug’ Prayer / Healing Shawl’ that I just did a few weeks ago. Here is the link.

The edge …#52 of my ‘Around the Corner Crochet Borders’ book from Edie Eckman.  I made a row of single crochet, skipped the DC row and went for the last 2 rows.  It gives the shawl a girlie curl … just perfect.

And to make it all complete, I made a flower that I mounted on a very special safety-pin … the one from a kilt that Saskia received from her Bon-Papa when she was around 6 years old.  That kilt is long gone but I kept the safety-pin as a treasure and souvenir of my Daddy.
