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!

Back To The Hook with Grinda!

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,
