Grinda Shawl Parts 2 and 3

I have really been enjoying crocheting this delicate shawl. It is filled with advanced beginner stitches that stitch up in no time.

I like the contrast of the front loop raised stitch and the lacey stitch of the body. It separates each section and adds a bit of interest to the eye and touch.

I am using a Scheepjes Whirl Cake that I bought on Etsy. The color is in these lovely plum tones called “Tasty Nom Nom #789”. I like how gradually the color changes into a delicate ombré effect.

The pattern for this shawl is called the Grinda shawl designed by Tatsiana @Lila Bjorn Crochet, and it is free! Yea! I always love that word, don’t you?:). Tatsiana is so talented. I love all of her designs❤️

It is quite easy to follow the pattern. It has written instructions and a stitch map for each section. I use the stitch map. I find it easier to just look and stitch instead of read and stitch.

I’m excited to start part 4 of my Grinda Shawl. It is the final section before the lace edging. It’s almost done…well, these next few rows are longer and take quite a few more stitches to finish. It may still take a while:)

Oh well, I enjoy the therapy of stitching in the evenings while watching a show with my cute husband. By the way, we are watching “Ozark” and are addicted! Thank you Tierney for the recommendation:). We watch with a program called Vid Angel to clean it up to our tolerance.

This beautiful shawl is going to be a Christmas gift for my mother. She will not be able to see it very well because she has macular degeneration, but she will love the texture.

I am enjoying this project so much, that I might make another shawl for my mother-in-law as well!

Thank you so much for dropping by today. Please feel free to leave me a comment. I would love to hear from you:)

I hope you are having a totally SWEET day!

  1. I think I’d prefer a visual map of what I was making too, I’m no good with symbols instead of colour or writing instead of pictures! I do find knitting and crochet patterns quite impenetrable, part of the reason I’ve never really got into either of them. That yarn is a delicious range of colours, many kinds of crushed berries and cream 🙂

  2. I’ve never tried to use a stitch map. I don’t even know if I’ve ever seen one before. I’m a word comprehender, so that’s what I always use. Thanks for teaching me something new! I do think it’s very pretty and coming along nicely.

    1. Hi Susan! Stitch maps are really convenient. If you have never tried one, you might look on Pinterest for granny square Patterns and give one a try just from the map. On my projects, I like to read the first few rows and after I get going, I use the stitch map. A really good example of learning this is the pattern— Stardust Melodies. It’s a fun one:)❤️❤️

  3. Hi Tracy! You are doing a fabulous job. It is really so beautiful and delicate. My SIL has macular degeneration as well. Her other senses seems to have heightened as I’m sure has your mother. The texture will something she really enjoys and you can describe the beautiful color to her. So rich and jewel toned, how can she not love it?! She wrap up in all of your love. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Thank you Roseanne❤️. It is difficult to watch a loved one lose their sight. I agree with you on the heightened other senses. My mom is so positive and happy though. She is such an inspiration and will definitely love feeling it wrapped around her. Thank you for your kind comments😊❤️

  4. That is so gorgeous! I would love to learn to read a stitch map someday! Oh it is pretty scary but we’ve been watching the Hill House series on Netflix based on the Shirley Jackson’s 1959 book Haunting of Hill House – excellent but definitely jump out of your seat scary at times!
