It 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 ….
