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:
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 ❤️
A perfect match with my favourite Odd Molly dress❤️
Snuggly, warm and luxurious in 100% alpaca
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.
