The Blue/Pink Nordic Shawl

maRRose - CCC, Nordic Shawl - pink/blueIt must have been pretty obvious from when I shared my black Nordic Shawl (you can read about that here), that I really love this pattern. In fact so much so, that I’ve made another one.

This time I’ve used a wonderfully soft, variegated yarn called “Alize” (“Cotton Gold”, 55% cotton/45% acrylic, color code 3686) for the main part. The variation in color that developed while crocheting would actually not have made it necessary to crochet the border pattern in different colors – I think – but I still like the way it turned out.

I have to admit I’ve started yet another one ….. I’m using the pink/purple variegated “Alize” for this one and I have decided that I will continue crocheting the mixed stitches part with the same yarn this time.
Unfortunately I’ve run out of the pink “Alize” (and so had my Mr. Woolman, grrrr), but luckily I found an online yarn store (in Latvia, mind you) that still carries it and I just got an email from them saying they’ve shipped my order!

So, hopefully soon I’ll be able to show you the pink/purple version ….

  • Hoi Marianne,

    Weet je dat Alize een turks merk is? Ik woon al een aantal jaar in Turkije, dus als je nog eens iets nodig hebt, laat het me weten! Alize en Nako zijn hier de merken die het meest verkopen. Je shawl is echt heel leuk geworden! Ik denk dat ik maar weer eens de kant van de wolmarkt op ga 🙂

    • Ha Marleen,
      Dank voor je compliment! Véél dank ook voor je ontzettend lieve aanbod – dat raakt me nou recht in het hart! Ja, ik begon te twijfelen, dus heb net voor de zekerheid nog even op het labeltje gekeken, maar daar staat inderdaad “made in Turkiye”; ik vind op het label ook twee webadressen, nl. en – zegt je dat iets?
      Oh …. een wolmarkt, wat lijkt met dat heerlijk! Veel plezier! xx

      • Hoi Marianne 🙂 ja inderdaad, Als je op ‘el örgü iplik koleksiyonu’ klikt en dan naar beneden scrollt zie je wat ze nog verder te bieden hebben. T is een welgemeend aanbod hoor! En de wolmarkt…ja, stel je voor, een winkelstraat met alleen maar wol en knutsel winkels! İn istanbul, maar voor mij toch best ver weg, istanbul is zo’n grote stad.. Maar her en der zijn er ook kleine winkeltjes voor de ‘hoge nood’ zeg maar 🙂 at dat betreft heb ik niet te klagen… Groetjes!

  • Hi, I’ve been admiring the colours you have chosen for months, what a lovely idea and thank you for introducing me to Aliize yarns, I’m going to try them out. Could you tell me the other yarns yummy used with the variegated yarn, was it the Alize cotton gold, and if so would you mind letting me know the codes/numbers for the colours.

    You have made such a beautiful shawl.

    Thank, Wanda

    • Ah, thank you Wanda, that’s so lovely to read! Alize yarns are wonderful to work with, you’ll love it – I’m sure of that. Oh, gosh….. it’s been so long since I made these; I’ve been going through my remnants, but I could not find the wrappers/colors codes anymore, I’m sorry. I do know I used Alize Cotton Gold; solid colors that matched those found in the variegated Alize. Maybe this link is helpful?
      Good luck, and happy crocheting! Marianne xx
