Virus shawl, Wool and Yarn

The Ultimate Virus Shawl

The Ultimate Virus Shawl 

I was recently commissioned by a friend to make her a shawl to wear to a wedding. 

E018D8E8-70BF-4BF4-91DA-8A1E621509FC

The Virus shawl is such a versatile pattern and looks different depending on the wool or yarn used. On this occasion I used the King Cole Cherished in Champagne. 

The Virus shawl pattern I used was a free online pattern by Connie @ https://thatoldschoolgirlagain.files.wordpress.com/2016/07/virus-shawl-written-crochet-pattern-1.pdf 

To make it the “Ultimate Shawl” for this special occasion I decided to add an edging, forming a collar and then adding bling by adding hot fix Crystals in a pretty peach colour to the edge of the finished shawls edging. 

The Virus shawl edging just adds that little bit extra to make this a very special piece of crochet I think.  And my friend is over the moon with her unique item of clothing to wear to her sons wedding. 

The Pattern For The Edging 

I will write up the pattern / instructions for the edging of this virus shaw as soon as I have time. I am currently working on a Crochet Lounge original pattern for some baby shoes, which will be available in the next couple of weeks, so watch out for that on the blog too.
