Crochet: Winter Warmth Shawl is my latest crochet project…
it's made out of 'faux' mohair.
I know, I know…
why would I want to make anything out 'faux'???
Apart from the cheaper
the faux is a lot stronger than real mohair
so it's resistant to my man hands.
oh, and I really liked the colour.
This particular 'faux' mohair
is by Lincraft, and is called Winter Warmth.
It's 100% Acrylic Mohair.
The shawl pattern I used is Japanese,
& is very easy to make
even with all the fluff…and my man hands.
For those of you new to Sewing Daisies, I only crochet from
a) Japanese crochet books & patterns are beautiful
b) I can only crochet from pictograms
oh, and I have no idea
what crochet stitches are officially called.
So if you have ever thought that
crochet was for 'experts' think again,
if I can crochet, anyone can!
(really, you can)
Anyway, if you have a free weekend and
don't fancy moving off the couch.
Why not make yourself a lovely shawl?!
but I will be wearing mine as a scarf.
What do you think?
