My First Shawlette Design

Ta-dah! My new project is finished! It is a shawlette and I named it Windy Morning, mostly because it was terribly windy on the day we (my husbamnd and me) made final pictures. This will be a short blog post to show you how this shawlette looks and in which ways it can be worn.

Last week I posted a few sneak peeks of my work in progress. By that time shawlette was almost finished and I was deciding on the color for the border with petals. At first I wanted to use contrasting colors to give a small bright accent. This shawlette is made with Stone Washed* yarn by Scheepjes and I used shades Amazonite (813), Crystal Quartz (814) and Boulder Opal (804) for the body. And then I was hesitating if I really should add anything or just stay within the same colour palette.




Thanks so much to everyone who helped me by commenting on Facebook post. Many color choices did sound awesome, but since I didn’t have many shades of Stone Washed yarn in my stash, I decided to go for Boulder Opal (804) again, and use it for the border. It also helped to reduce the yardages. Or maybe yardages is not the right word here. But I didn’t have to use a new skein of yarn. Sometimes less is more, indeed!

To say I don’t like to be pictured is to say nothing, hehe. Unfortunately my friend was not available on the day I wanted to make final shots. So there was nothing left for me but to be a model myself… My idea was to show different ways this shawlette can be worn. It was cold and windy on that day… But anyway – here are the pictures!

As I've already mentioned the shape of this project is very simple and easily adjustable. You can make it longer or shorter, wider or narrow. Free pattern will be published next week here on my blog. I believe it will be suitable for beginners, as there are no intricate or very difficult stitches used. You can make this shawlette in one colour only, or add more stripes according to your taste. Just everything you wish!

  3. Thank you! Making this shawlette not symmetrical I thought - then it can be worn in different ways and with defferent color accents (depending on your current mood). you can show the colorful part, or another one.

    1. I tried dark blue and moon stone for the border. And they actually worked very well. But with white the shawlette was too festive. And dark blue would demand some special colors in clother. So I decided to stay with the most neutral variant.

  10. I have just finished your Shawlette - I made it in a pinka nd purple fingering weight wool and bamboo yarn - trying to set it up as a project on my Ravelry page (Im Maggie Lewin on there) not very good at using Ravelry. I will post a pic on Facebook as well. But wanted to say thank you SO much for this pattern - with the asymetrical stripes as you said it can be worn different ways. I only had two colours so I sort of made up the stripe pattern as I went along.
