My last post I showed you the shawl I made for the Summer Shawl Swap 2017 hosted by Crochet Creations by Leah. You can find her on Instagram @crochetcreationsbyleah or in her Etsy shop at Crochet Creations by Leah. Pop in and see what she's got for sale!!
Today I am showing you the beautiful shawl that showed up on my doorstep Monday. It is called Murcia and you can find the free pattern on Ravelry. Want to see more lovely creations? Search #Summershawlswap2017 in Instagram.
The summer shawl swap works the same as a Secret Santa. I really enjoyed shopping and making a gift for someone else. I was a bit nervous at first, wondering rather my person would like what I made, but I put on my big girl panties and shipped it out!! I will let you know what she thinks when I hear from her.
I am participating in the summer shawl swap of 2017 on Instagram. Each person makes a shawl and sends it to their "secret crafter". To see some of the other shawls that have been made just search #summershawlswap2017 on Instagram. The pattern I chose to make is called "Mine Once More" by Michele DuNaier. This shawl is worked from the top down, which was a change for me as most of the shawls I have made have been from the point up or just a rectangle. I have created a link (in blue) to the pattern listing in Ravelry. This is a premium pattern but well worth every penny.
The yarn I used for this shawl is called "Dancing Feet" a sock weight yarn that is a 70/30 wool/nylon blend. It is available in 8 different colors and you can find it at BambooMN.com
I found this pattern easy to make, easy to read and very well written!!
