Pearls and the mermaid shawl,
my 7-year old son Vic saw the yarn, touched it, and said : ‘I cannot stop thinking about mermaids, and pearl oysters.
So I decided to make a tender shawl,
to give you warmth, softness and tenderness,
for that long walk on the beach…
And I added some power and strength too, in the center of the shawl, the lace-panel represents action, movement and female power. These qualities that alle mermaids have of course.
The edging is formed by several repetitions of the lace-panel, to give an extra accent of wideness, the endlessness of the wide sea.
Topdown design, with increases on the sides and in the center.
Any yarn and any hook size can be used, because the size of the shawl is easy adjustable, I explain how to do it.
Yarn : aran / worsted weight yarn : 3 skeins of RedHeart Boutique Unforgettable, shade Candied, are used.
Crochet hook : 5 mm.
Fully written pattern in English (US crochet terms) and in Dutch.
2 charts are added as well : 1 for the body of the shawl and 1 for the edging.
Tested by my testing panel.
This design has successfully participated in Design Wars.
