What materials did you use? I used King Cole Melody double knitting wool with a 6mm hook although original pattern used an aran yarn and a 5mm crochet hook.

What are you most proud of? I am most proud of the fact that I managed to complete the shawl in time for him to be born despite the fact that shortly after starting it I fractured my right wrist. I have since had the plaster removed but remain having problems from chronic regional pain syndrome (crps). I actually believe that doing the crochet helped me in my recovery and was great physio.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This project is a beautifully easy and a stunning piece to do. The shawl can be easily individualised and is beautiful to look at. I completed this project in a colour change wool as we didn't know the sex when I started it. This will be a great confidence booster for a beginner to crochet. I decided that the original pattern wasn't big enough so made it half as big again and also added more shell rows on the edging in a solid colour wool once we knew the gender of baby.
