SW Style Handspun Alpaca Shawl

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I started with a garter tab cast on and made it up as I went along. I like the overall look and it is soooo soft! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try designing your own using some or all of Stephen's techniques to create a truly unique item.

What you will need

  • Pure alpaca
  • handspun

Thank you!
rachelterry asked:
Is there a pattern for the shawl?
WonderWoollens answered:
No, I just used Stephen's method of the garter tab cast on and YO increases either side of the centre st and on both sides at the edges. For the contrasting colour I just made it up as I went along. Finished with a crab st crochet edging.
