FO Friday ~ Luv & More Luv

Oh my goodness what can I say.  I absolutely love how this shawl turned out.  When I posted this as an FO last week I was at odds about the trimming.  I looked at motifs and lace edgings but I really wanted something simple so I went for a small ruffle edging.

After the shawl part was done I simply double crocheted around the entire edging of the shawl then I started another double crochet row but every three stitches I did two dc's in one stitch and this created my ruffle.  After that row I simply did another double crochet row and there you have it.  It's the perfect size for me.  Not too big and not small at all.  Like I said...  LUV !

The pattern is The Original Half Granny Shawl by
Ambar Enid Alcalá which is free by the way.

The yarn is Malabrigo Lace in the colorway Shocking Pink.

I used crochet hook size G.

I would love to make another one of these with an even thinner lace and a smaller needle.  I think crochet stitches done on small hooks is just so pretty. 

I'll be pulling out more of my Malabrigo lace also.  I really enjoyed working with it.  Oh yes.  I have plans.

Enjoy Your Day !
