Crochet The Everlasting Love Shawl
Hello everyone!I hope you are well. Today I wanted to share with you how to crochet The Everlasting Love Shawl.
This is a beautiful shell shawl that I designed only recently, between diaper changes and baby feeds, which simply seem to take up all of my time now.
I really love my new mum life, however sometimes it is hard not having any family in this country to help me out. I suppose that’s life, I know being a mummy is my favourite job so far, even if I have no breaks and no days off! It’s the biggest blessing I have ever had.
The video to make this shawl is available on Youtube if you follow this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bhs08fJNWUU&feature=youtu.be
To Crochet The Everlasting Love Shawl is so easy
This very easy project was inspired by the everlasting love which exists between a mummy and her child. I know I was inspired to design this pattern when I look at my baby boy and feel all the feels just watching him! He is so perfect and lovely, his little smile and laid back personality really bring me so much happiness and joy.
I thought I would create a garment in my spare time that would always remind me of this bond between a mum and her son. The name for The Everlasting Love Shawl is inspired by the love between a mother and her son, which lasts forever.
A very delicate accessory
I loved making this easy project as it is very delicate to look at. It’s quite simple to crochet, making it a very beginner friendly project. Indeed, if you are a beginner crocheter, you can definitely make this shawl. It is a very simple repeat of the shell stitch.
I made it using two skeins of Sirdar Pattercake in shade Candy Cane n°752, and a 4 mm crochet hook. To be honest, I only used a third of the second skein. This leaves the rest of the skein perfect for another project such as a hat or a scarf, for instance.
To crochet The Everlasting Love Shawl is amazing
I absolutely adore this yarn. The colour choices are amazing and I have to admit I have quite a stash of these Pattercakes at home, waiting to be transformed into crochet projects. I love the way they have mixed these beautiful colours, which resemble the colour of the rainbow truly.
I believe Lion Brand Mandala Baby Cakes have very similar colours, and they are the same type of yarn (DK in England, Light 3 in American terms). So those could definitely be an option if you can’t get hold of a Pattercake. I know variegated yarns are possibly my favourite types of yarn out there. Do you love them too?
I think they build up so beautifully into lovely shawls and wraps, scarfs and hats, and I just cannot get enough of them! Also, let me know if you have ever used Sirdar Pattercakes. I love to hear from my dear crochet family, and your opinion on them.
This shawl can be worn casually or very chic with a brooch
This accessory is also really versatile and easy to wear. Indeed you can throw it over your shoulders on a chilly evening, or add some sparkle and a chic element to it by tying it with a pin or brooch.
I have quite a collection of brooches at the moment, all of which I have bought from Charity Shops. I cannot wait to be able to accessorize my crochet shawls with them! Dear crochet friends, I would love to know how you wear your crochet shawls and wraps. Do you love brooches as much as I do?
