outing shawl

I found via an instagram friend this lovely pattern called the Outing Shawl.  I wanted to try something a bit more complicated and to also make something for myself.  A few days later I happened upon this vibrant cotton on sale at Spotlight and thought the colour was a bit of fun.

I wear a lot of black, navy and grey - especially in winter so the orange was perfect.

The pattern took me a little while to get my head around, and I certainly couldn't memorise it, but I did get the hang of it in the end.

I made the shawl a bit longer than the pattern stated, and I haven't blocked it yet either.  But I have warn it a couple of times.  

It's pretty and comfortable and I'm so proud of it!

It's lovely! Crochet has so many possibilities, but my favourite patterns are always shawls and blankets. :)
