I started this one in April of last year. When the heat hit it went away. It's much to hot here in Kansas to crochet with alpaca. I'm so glad this is done now as it's keeping me very warm while I hangout in our
- Frog tree alpaca - 13 skeins - eep! In purple/lavender
- crochet hook 3.5mm
- Patchwork Shawl from Mon Tricot Knit & Crochet The Knitters' Basic Book Vol2. I'm pretty sure its also the Carnival Shawl that's in a Rowan pattern book. I lucked out and found the Mon Tricot mag at the thrift store a few weeks after someone shared her finished shawl on crochetville.
- I found this shawl pattern here that has a similar motif but done bigger but it could be adapted.
- Another free option here that would also work.
Another view just before I added the fringe which shows how hard it is to get good color photos especially with purple. The one below gives better feel for just how beautiful this fiber is but the one above gives a bit better idea that this really is purple rather than blue.
Someday I'll make this again without the fringe. Fringe is fun but it gets in the way.
