I don’t really wear shawls, and I hardly ever see anyone wearing them. Scarves and cowls in the winter, yes, but flowy elegant shawls in the summer? Never, except maybe at weddings. Yet, my social media feeds overflow with elaborate, elegant shawls. There are countless beautiful yarns manufactured only, it seems, for shawl making. I have to be honest, I don’t get it. When do you guys wear them?

Strange beginning to a post about a shawl! But I had actually thought about a use for this shawl before I started making it – to keep me warm outside during those beautiful sunlit – but often quite chilly – Swedish summer nights. And nothing keeps you warm like good old sheep’s wool! I bought this beautiful handmade stuff on Gotland (island off Sweden’s east coast) last summer. If you visit the island, check out Gotlands Spinneri and their beautiful selection of craft yarns! This yarn is called ‘Töis’, meaning young lady in local Gotland accent. It is very fine and light, yet super warm. I used a 4.5 mm hook to get a light airy fabric.

The pattern for this shawl is super simple. Here is a diagram:

    I have fibromyalgia and I love shawls! They keep me warm and cozy. And I Iove making them. This shawl is lovely. Love the colors. I think I’m going to order the yarn and start crocheting.

      At the moment this is only available as a diagram I’m afraid.
