About the designer

Crafting since childhood, I mostly knit but I also enjoy sewing and spinning. Sometimes I do stuff like crochet, cross stitching, bobbin lace or tatting.

Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

This halfcircle shawl is worked in Tunisian simple stitch with a small border. This lightly patterned border is worked sideways and attached to the main shawl as you go. Finally, a picot edge with beads is worked using regular crochet, weighing down the edge. With all these bordering features, it is possible to use a non-woolen yarn for this shawl " it will look great without blocking and the edges won(tm)t curl!
