Lacy loops and flowers shawl - new pattern

Pin It

After my first triangular shawl here, I had always wanted to make a lacy one with flower motifs joined together. I have seen some of them in the internet and in crochet magazines and was inspired to create one. I felt crocheting countless flowers and joining them all together would be a huge task for me since I normally don't enjoy such things, also it wouldn't be much different from the Japanese flower scarf that was very popular some time ago. So I decided to make loopy flower squares so that when the squares are all joined together the final effect would be a mesh shawl with interwoven flowers.

I was left with plenty of pink and fushcia yarns from my round ruffle blanket and so they became my obvious choice of colors for the flowers. I also had the beige yarn which I felt complemented the pinks well.

Actually I finished this shawl long ago and the pattern was also written and ready to publish but all of a sudden I lost interest in it and the photographing part got delayed. Finally I pulled myself up together and completed it. The pattern is now available in my Etsy, Craftsy and Ravelry stores.
