Goodness me what a fuss!! It was only for a minute or two so I could have some pics for my blog!!!
The modelling also came with strict conditions..... no showing model's face. The drape of the shawlette wasn't exactly as I wanted it either but I was under duress as model was getting irritable!!! Tch!!!
A Perle cotton shawlette for cool summer evenings although the colour is much nicer than in these photos.
I made this shawlette as a little something for my Cookie's American Grandma who lives in Florida and I know it must be hot there so I thought a light mercerized cotton shawlette would be practical for the occasional cool evening.
I bought this pattern from Etsy. It is called the "Rosa-rosae shawl designed by Angéle Lumière .
Although, to some it may look intricate it isn't you just have to be careful (counting continuously) that the flowers coincide with each other and you don't miss a row. I used a size 4.00 hook and Katia Brisa Nº 53 Light maroon x 4.
The girls(daughter and grand-daughter ) will be off to visit Cookie's American family on Friday so I have managed to get the shawlette finished just on time. It took me three weeks to complete which I didn't think was too long at all considering I crochet at intervals when work allows.
Happy Easter to you all!!!
