We’ve all had breakthrough moments in our lives. Moments when new possibilities opened up for us or when something trumatic happened. Back in February of last year, I decided to show my crochet designs to the world and, therefore, try to turn my hobby into a career. Maybe I should try harder and design more but life can be sometimes unpredictable. Hence, this shawl will always remind me about the most traumatic day in my life so far.
On the other hand this crochet design, Serrate Shawl, is one of my favourite. I can remember the moment this shawl idea came to my mind, it happened late autumn when last leaves were falling down. I have been playing with stitches in both leaves and solid panel until I achieved a desire kind a crescent shape.
Along with clear vision of how this shawl should look, I had already knew what yarns I am going to use for this project. I had in my stash two gorgeous, dark bottle-green skeins of yarn from Polish hand dyer Slavica Yarns. It’s 100% Merino Wool and it’s absolutely fantastic to work with.
I LOVE experimenting with crochet stitches, textures, shapes and yarns. I know, it takes a time sometimes to complete the project, from a vision to finished design but I also know it’s worth it.
This gorgeous wrap pattern contains two solid panels and lace leaves motif at the center, a combination that has been found to be completely addicting. With the generous wingspan and depth, this shawl is extremely wearable.
Pattern includes list of abbreviations, crochet chart and written instruction (all tested). There are also some notes on how to make your shawl bigger/smaller.
Finished measurements: Approximately 24 inches (61 cm) wide at the middle and 75 inches (190 cm) long, blocked.
I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I did. Pick your favourite luxurious yarn and make your own Serrate Shawl! It is so fun to crochet, easy to memorize, and will fly off your hook!
