first shawl.....

I'm very pleased with my latest project

~ Morning Has Broken Prayer Shawl ~ This is the first time I have crocheted a shawl and now I understand the passion people have for making them....it really was a joy from start to finish!
I found this lovely pattern on Ravelry

by Kelly Surace

made using 4 x balls of Lincraft Surprise 'sunset'

and a 5mm hook.

I did alter the pattern a little,

I used a smaller hook so that the pattern was a little tighter.

and I put a different edging on all three sides.

my edging I crocheted a shell border consisting of 2sc,1dc,2sc in first space, 1sc in next space, continue until you reach the centre point

& For Centre Point - in point stitch work 2sc in first space of point stitch, 3dc in centre of point stitch, 2sc in 3rd space of point stitch. (US terms)


You can find the pattern on Ravelry



Thank you so much Kelly for sharing this lovely pattern :)

Have a wonderful day

Thank you Anonymous & Maryann :)

Maryann, I just realised I didn't say this is a gift for a very special lady in my family so I wont be wearing it, But I hope she enjoys wearing each time x
