The Granny Merge Shawl

Firstly, of course, I fell in love with this yarn… love the colours and because it is composed mostly of acrylic it will be hard wearing but the small percentage of wool added into the mix means it should also be warm yet still remain lightweight, perfect for a cool summers evening.

I found this pattern after several starts and stops with other patterns… nothing seemed to work out. In fact I had a complete disaster with one shawl that I started so I looked for something that was easy to make in the evening when the tv was on. This pattern seemed to fit the bill and I found it was so enjoyable and relaxing that I started to crochet outdoors in the back yard over a couple of afternoons. This was great because the entire shawl made up in one weekend.

I just kept on repeating the alternating pattern of double crochet block followed by granny stitch block until it reached the length I wanted. I made it as a gift for my niece and I think she looks awesome with it on!!!
