Follow-up Friday – The “Julia” Shawl

maRRose - CCC - Julia Shawl-15Another shawl has been welcomed into the “maRRose”-crochet family!
Let me present to you “Julia”, fabulously soft and squishy, in a pretty pastel color (mint), and very easy to crochet.
maRRose - CCC - Julia Shawl-14My “Julia” inspiration came from several sources on Instagram; in fact, I shamelessly copied the shawl my sweet friend Miriam made – I soooo loved hers!
I even used the same yarn ……

The stitch used is very simple, but goes by a lot of different names: granite stitch, moss stitch, seed stitchlinen stitch, or woven stitch.

Using a 9 mm hook, and a pattern/stitch that did not need a whole lot of concentration, this shawl was done in a jiffy. maRRose - CCC - Julia Shawl-22The fun fringes put just the right finishing touch on this shawl: I love how it turned out, and have already used it several times!
