So I’m not really a floaty kind of person, all girlie and pink, but I was going through all the other gorgeous blogs I read in Blogland, via Bloglovin’ (if you are interested in following my blog) and I came across a Ta Dah moment from the gorgeous Coco Rose Diaries. Now I hope the owner of this blog won’t mind me saying but I just lurrrrvvvveedd this shawl and I’m not a shawly person at all!
It’s not the colours particularly, as they are not the ones I would choose, but I think it’s the thought of snuggling up with it round my shoulders on a winter’s evening, in front of the wood burner, or wrapping it round me like a scarf before I go out for a walk with the dog! – Blimey, I’ve just re-read that bit and sound like I’m 90! (I’m not, by the way!)
Anyway, there is a link to a free pattern from Lion Brand here which is the one I’m following and although I had a bit of trouble with the words to begin with as it’s quite complicated when you try to write it down, they have included a brilliant diagram which makes the thing totally easy to follow!
I’m using a Drops Baby Merino yarn in Light Mint which is gorgeous but I think I will be putting a border on it in a different colour. Maybe Light Yellow or Light Old Pink as I have both of these in my stash – all yummy colours as you can see so it will be difficult to choose.
