The Nordic Shawl


Ta-dah!!


My Nordic Shawl from the wonderful My Rose Valley is finished, and I am completely in LOVE with it ❤️
This post will be an overload of photos - I got a little carried away there, for a moment....

Here we go, the big Nordic Shawl show-off....:


All ends weaved in, and ready for blocking:


Blocking.... 

It just goes on and on and on....❤️❤️

I'm so happy with my colourscheme ❤️ I tried loads of different alternatives, but finally decided to stick to a warm pallette, and only 4 colours in the border, instead of 6 which the pattern suggests. This gives a more muted and calmer look to it, I think...

(I loved making this so much, so I'm already planning to make another one with a totally different look, and more vibrant colours. A girl  can never have too many shawls, right? )

Ta- dah! My lovely  Nordic Shawl is complete and ready ❤️

Laid out in all it's glory ❤️

Such a lovely border! I really love this pattern ❤️

A perfect match with my favourite Odd Molly dress❤️

Snuggly, warm and luxurious in 100% alpaca 

LOVE ❤️❤️

Facts: 

Yarn: Sandnes Alpakka ( 100% alpaca)
Hook size: 4,5 mm ( a little too big for the yarn, buy I wanted to get a nice and drapy shawl, so the tension had to be a little loose). 3.5 mm on the border.
Pattern: The Nordic Shawl from My Rose Valley. You can buy it here



                                              ❤️ Live - Laugh - Love ❤️

  3. Love your color choices. I was was poking around the Internet, looking at the colors other people have chosen. I'm a long way from getting my shawl done, but now I'm inspired to keep going.

    Great job!

  5. Your shawl is beautiful and the yarn looks so soft and cosy! I love the pink edging against the grey.
