|Sparrow crescent shawl|
Well, this collection gave me the final push to stop procrastinating and start scratching my head!
|Cascade Eco Cloud|
color "1808 Wild Dove"
I had these 2 skeins of Cascade Eco Cloud for a while, and they were so lovely I had a hard time deciding what to do with them. I bought these skeins to try out the yarn before working on a full garment with it, a process I learned was worth it.
It was a while since I worked a shawl in a worsted weight yarn, and I finally decided to go through with this idea. I went ahead with a crescent shape, because I like a lot and I think it's versatile and fun to wear.
I decided to use a simple texture for the central panel, to add just a bit of interest without making the shawl overly complicated. The large lacy border gives a strong visual impact and just what it takes to bring everything together in this simple design. The optional crochet border adds to the lace effect but can be replaced by a few rows of garter stitch if desired!
The overall pattern is quite simple, and makes a fun little project!
Pattern is now available as an individual download as well as a part of the "Frugal Knitting" collection.
