Beautiful shawl-lots of colour options

I completed this shawl as part of the mystery crochet along. The result is a fascinating shawl which combines stripes and pattern variations. There are so many possibilities to play with different colour options. As always the pattern is very clearly written with helpful charts and diagrams.

Very wearable

I really enjoyed this pattern, the ripples look amazing and it was very easy to follow. I used autumn colours so this gets worn from September onwards

Beautiful, interesting pattern

I've made this shawl twice - once for me using Riverknits yarn and once for my mum using yarn that I dyed myself. I loved making it - the pattern is varied and interesting and the shawl is a really practical shape that is easy to wear. As always the pattern is well written and easy to follow and depending on the yarn you use there's so much scope for making it lots of times and it looking completely different each time :)
