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 !
