I am so happy to finally be able to share this shawl with you. In this month’s shawl club box, Sam wanted to have a Paris theme to the crochet set. I had been playing around with some triangular-based stitch patterns and felt that they were a little bit reminiscent of the Eiffel Tower (tenuous, I know), so I started to work up something a little bit different. This shawl has a central ‘lace’ section which is worked first and then wings are added to it to frame the lace part and add width. It is worked here in a 120g red yak singles sock yarn from unbelievawool which was just beautiful to use and it has a wonderful drape to it. The shawl is a big one! As you may be able to tell, I was quite pleased with how it came out. Red is one of my favourite colours and so this is going to be used quite a lot.
The edging is the same one I used on the Escapism shawl, as I wanted neat triangles along the border and that method is the best one I have found for achieving that effect. The shawl shown here was the sample I made, but I think that a plain border along the bottom edge looks neater, and so that is what I recommend in the pattern itself.
Sometimes something very simply looks the most striking!
