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.
