For 2017 year’s edition of Indie June LoveCrochet.com wanted to do something special so they invited a group of designers to create a collection of knitted and crocheted garments featuring The Yarn Collective yarn (which I blogged about here). The result is the Coastal Adventures Anthology – featuring eight beautiful patterns with inspiration from Scandinavian summers on the coast.
I’m really excited to now reveal what I designed with The Yarn Collective’s Pembroke Worsted Yarn. May I introduce to you my new Pembroke Seascape Shawl!
The rectangular Pembroke Seascape Shawl, made from the softest hand dyed merino wool, is as light as a sea breeze!
It’s just perfect for covering up on a chilly summer evening or on an adventurous stroll around a coastal path.
I always think shawls are fun to crochet when I’m making them (I really should make more!). I’ve had such fun with this one adding different stitch patterns which beginner and advanced crocheters should enjoy. The shawl’s sinuous ripples and texture, combined with the cool grey and blue variegated colours, are inspired by marbled ocean waves lapping at a pebbly beach.
Although the pattern may look complex it is very straightforward and will be readily picked up by beginners.
