A new shawl !!!!

I was browsing through one of my Japanese crochet books and I found this chart ….


…. this was meant for a part of a blouse I was not interested in (!!!!) , but I loved the idea to use it for a new shawl, designed by me !!!!

I've been using some Sirdar Wash'n'Wear DK Double Crepe (shade 0282/lot 126292 grey and shade 0251/dye 109925 white ) with a 4mm hook.
My foundation chain was of 99 chains ( you have to consider that 12 chains stand for one triangle), so I did 12x8 triangles +3 ( this is the equivalent of your first double crochet, US crochet terms !) = 99 !!!

This is what I got :






Some details of both edgings (yes, not only one!) …..



For the pom pom edge look HERE
For the pointy edge, inspiration from HERE

I didn't follow any precise idea, the shawl just developed row by row following the inspiration of the moment !!!
I started my work using a lot of grey and I completed it with alternating stripes of white and grey ….











…. may I say : not bad, eh ?  ;oD

Happy Weekend, xxxx Alessandra

    1. Hi again Stel!!!! I really like to link to your crochet group, but what really "upsets" me is that when I try to translate with Bling, well I still cannot understand what is written in Souh African…… I hope I'm not doing anything wrong !!!!!

    2. Bing...is silly. Google Translate might fare better - otherwise just ask if you don't understand, I'll translate. At last count we had 19 languages following!

  22. You are ever so creative! Look what you've done: completely asymmetrica and l yet a perfect colour match!

    Do I spot a swimming pool in the background of picture 9? Lucky you! I can't believe you make so many artistic products, I would be swimming round and round all of the time.

  24. Not bad at all! Your work is always amazing. I might be able to get a couple of rows of triangles but then the further along I got, they might turn into all sorts of shapes. Ha! Very neat work. And I like the different edges. Have a great week. Tammy
