A little september shawlette, inspired by the lovely Ilaria. I love her choice of colour but feared by the time it was finished I might be looking for a more deeper wintery colour. In the shop both colours called, and continued to call. Clearly I am a woman caught between two seasons. The dusky blue felt like a wearable colour for me. I tend to wear a lot of blue and grey. After using a ball of the darker shade i knew i would simply have to start using the aqua, and I have to say that my heart did give a little skip of joy about that too.
And now I am wondering if my little two-tone number will actually work. They say colour blocking is trending right now...... right?!.... I plan on crocheting a ball of aqua too and then slinging it around my shoulders nonchalantly.
If you would like to try it out you can follow this link for the free pattern. You can easily sign in with your first name and e-mail address. Being the first time i have made anything like this, it's quite straight forward, as long as you can remember to begin by working in the back of the first chain. If you can work that out, you'll be fine! I can imagine many soft drapey colours that would be lovely. I will be scurrying to fit in rows here and there this week, in amongst a totally exploding to do list. So many things are calling. Have a great week,
