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!

  1. Heel mooi! Na vorige week mijn zoveelste sjaal te hebben afgewerkt dacht ik dat ik er nu wel genoeg heb, maar je hebt me aan het twijfelen gebracht… Ach, sjaals kan je niet genoeg hebben, wel? Fijn weekend 🙂

  2. Wat is die mooi geworden. Dat garen voelt inderdaad heerlijk zacht. En leuk dat je het patroon hebt aangepast. Erg leuk!!
    Groetjes Sandra
