I’m interrupting my mini blog series on plastic reduction to talk shawls, well only 2 and one is what I call a wrap (not a plastic wrap!).

The first is Queen of May which was published in Inside Crochet issue number 101.

This is a luxury wrap made with 4 skeins of Willow Knits  hand-dyed worsted weight silk yarn.  The pattern rights returned to me at the end of last month and I published it last week as a single pattern.  You can find it on Ravelry here.  And you will see the wrap at all the yarn festivals that Willow Knits is going to, including Yarndale, and a paper pattern will be available on Willow Knits stand also.

The second is a triangular shawl and I absolutely love it.  It is made in a kidsilk blend yarn which I have been enjoying working with in the heat this summer, it is light and fluffy and worked on a 4mm hook so it is perfectly airy.  This is Pluming Lovely Shawl.

Why is it called Pluming Lovely?  Well it is made with Willow & Lark Plume, available from LoveCrochet here.  You need just 3 balls of the yarn and you can choose whatever colours you like.   What I love about it is the weight – it weighs under 75g yet is lovely and warm, so is perfect for a holiday as it takes up no space or weight in your luggage!

You can find the pattern on Ravelry or LoveCrochet.

Happy crocheting xxx
