I love to crochet and have been sadly missing my crochet time. I have been so busy with quilting and life that I have not picked up a crochet hook in months. Well, I am happy to report that I am stitching again. Yea!!
When I saw this beautiful Grinda MAL shawl designed by Tatsiana @Lila Bjorn Crochet, I knew I had to make one, or two.
I have not crocheted anything for my mother in a very long time. I thought I would make a Shawl for her for Christmas. I ordered my Scheepjes Whirl and Whirlette yarn on Etsy. It is just the perfect color for her. I know she will love it:)
The pattern is free and is written in 5 parts. It did not take me too long to stitch up part # 1. I always find the first few inches of any crochet project to be the trickiest.
I like the lacey stitch and softness of the cotton blend yarn. I am getting used to using such thin yarn. It has been a while since I have had to manage a string yarn.
I’m excited to watch as the color blends to pink on part 2:)
I think each part will be divided by this raised ridge stitch. Isn’t it pretty?:)
Here is my completed part 1 of the Grinda MAL Shawl. I am going to absolutely love this!
I hope you are having a wonderful day filled with a creative project or two. Life is so so SWEET!
Until next time,
