The Quest for a Lacy Mohair Shawl - Part 1
On Wednesday nights I host the Crochet Studio at 3 Kittens Needle Arts in St. Paul. We have a great group of ladies with various skill levels and various projects going on all the time. There were a few who really wanted to crochet a lacy mohair shawl. We searched for pattern but couldn't find the "right one". The search continues; here I'm using Twinkle Handknits Kid Mohair with a G-6 (4mm) crochet hook, shells stitches, a few double crochets, a chain here and there, and that is about it. I loosely followed a shawl pattern called Seraphina.
I love Twinkle's Kid Mohair, it is soooo soft but terrible to rip, so I suggest you make sure you know exactly what you're doing before you begin. In this case, I knew I want to make this shawl so I was confident in starting it. I have a tendency to crochet, rip, repeat!
This is my first lacy mohair shawl, I've gone from chunky yarn and my P hook, to this, and honestly I love all crochet; big hook, small hook, chunky yarn to mohair, its all good.
