Spanish Dancer Shawl – Crochet Pattern

Another pattern to go on my pile…..

It's all in a Nutshell

My Spanish Dancer Shawl is now available. This shawl is large enough to make it possible to wear in many different ways, and has a fabulous drape due to the beaded edge. The lace version of the shawl is perfect for warm summer evenings, whereas the thicker double knit version is well suited for winter wearing.

Coastal Crochet

It’s International Yarn Bombing Day (yes there is such a day!) tomorrow on 11th June…

I never imagined when I put it up that it would last a month, let alone a year! Acrylic yarn is definitely the way to go. And I thought it might get removed by people but it hasn’t. The faded and weathered colours means it looks right at home there… Every time…

Here are the links to my Ravelry and Etsy stores where you can purchase the pattern for a small price. It’s a simple design but I’ve included a lot of step by step photos with the pattern too.

And yes, that’s a little piece of sea glass that I’ve used as a fastener!! 🙂
I’m so excited about finally having been able to use a piece of sea glass as a bead with my crochet!

I absolutely loved using the yarn from Miss Moffat Yarns
