15 gorgeous colour combinations to choose from. Talk about spoiled for choice! And best of all? Every kit sold has a donation to a children's cancer charity :-) So actually, by buying a kit you're donating to charity! Win win if you ask me! You can buy the yarn kit from Deramores!
I opted for Deep Ocean as I'm addicted to green!
So what's in the kit?
You get 2 balls of Invicta Colour and 3 balls of Invicta Extra in your chosen colours. You also get a pattern with the option to either knit or crochet, a giant pom pom template and a Sheepjeswol label.
These are the 2 stunning shawl designs you get the pattern for :-) Or alternatively you could just ahead and do your own thing!
I decided to crochet mine....because, whilst I can knit, I'm pretty slow at it. Plus I really wanted to conquer the join as you go thing! Ok this isn't for the faint hearted. There are 238 flower/star motifs to make! 2 rounds in the Invicta Extra then a round in the Invicta Colour. That's 952 ends to deal with!!!! if you say it really quickly it doesn't sound that bad ;-)
I decided from the start to weave in ends as I progressed. Much much easier!
And so it starts.....
The pattern is in both Dutch and English and there's also a chart
I'm really enjoying making this. I make the centres and then when I have a pile of them I join them to the shawl.
Oh just look at those pesky ends!!!!
I love the colour changes!
And this is where I'm at now! Obviously it hasn't been blocked. That will make a huge difference. I know it's wonky in the photo. It was the only photo I had without a cat in it!!!
I've mastered the join as you go thing. I can see lots more projects with this technique in the future :-)
I'm hoping to have this finished by the weekend. Optimistic I know!!!! I think I've only got 57 flowers left to go.....doesn't sound too bad if you say it quickly ;-)
Til next time!
