Crochet Projects

These are some crochet projects I did for this past Christmas. I did not have a blog at the time, so I am showing them now. I used the Serafina Pattern for the shawls using Joann’s Sensations Rainbow Boucle yarn. It was not written for this yarn, but as you can see it looks like it was. It stripes perfectly. I also did one other for my son’s daycare “mom” but I don’t have picture of it since my other hard drive crashed =(

At first it seems like a really difficult pattern. I had to make the first 7 rows with regular yarn so I could see what I was doing. After getting the hang of it, I used the boucle and it was very forgiving. And soft! I need to make one for myself one of these days. I never seem to crochet for myself lol.

Linking to these parties this week. Have a great weekend!!

  6. Those are just lovely. I'm working on a 'one ball shawl' right now, which is probably half as long as your shawls. I also tried a different yarn than originally called for--so actually, it's going to take a ball and a half, LOL! Hey, if you can't bend the rules, how can you be creative, right?

  15. Beautiful colours and work. Both are lovely but the rainbow blue really caught my eye. I love crocheting and made my little great nieces (3 sisters) ponchos in fun bright cotton colours two years ago.
