About the pattern

This shawl is a mix of simple stitches and filet crochet work which keeps the project interesting. It’s worked bottom-up with mesh stitches (double crochet stitches and chains) as a basis and we’ll use a graph to ‘paint’ a flower design. The design features a big rose in the center which is made by replacing chains with double crochet stitches. My mom painted the flower motifs for me and I turned it into a filet crochet pattern. 💗

If you’ve never tried filet crochet before, don’t worry, you can find my step by step video tutorial below.

About the yarn

For this shawl I’ve used very special yarn: My Merino by Master Knit in the most beautiful pink I’ve ever seen. It’s super super soft; you can really feel the high quality of this luxury yarn. I got this yarn from my friends at @knitcrochetstores when I met them at Vogue Knitting Live in New York.

I immediately knew I wanted to make a shawl, it just took me forever to come up with fun, simple and elegant design that can be made with just 2 skeins.

Tassels add a final touch. It’s very easy to make them using a Clover tassel maker.

1. Wound yarn around the tassel maker 55 times. Cut two more strands which are about 40 cm / 16″.

2. Add a knotted cord on top

3. Cut the yarn on the bottom (opposite of your knot)

4. Knot a strand around the tassel, about 1 cm from the top knot

5. Trim the bottom
