Purple scarf/shawl

The big key is keeping busy during any hospital stay.  For me, my stay has been indulging in crochet projects.  I’ve already completed an infinity scarf.  Then my cousin Amy brought me some Crochet magazines and I fell in love with this scarf/shawl.

To the left is a picture of my latest project I’m working on.  The pattern comes from Crochet Magazine Autumn 2014 and is designed by Elizabeth Davis De Herraiz.  The yarn is a fine number 2 using a “G” hook.  Part of the Premier Yarns brand it is under the Deborah Norville Collection.  Color 800-007.

If you want to see more of Elizabeth Davis De Herraiz’s designs you can go to Ravelry

Currently I am on row twenty-eight.  The shawl takes four skeins of yarn.  The pattern employs a four row repeat after row 12 to take it out to sixty-eight rows.  The piece requires blocking and stitch holders are recommended.

If you’re looking for a good crochet magazine I would recommend Crochet Magazine.  I purchased the yarn through Annie’s Attic which proved to be the best price.
