FO: Transposition shawl

IMG_1081

I love finishing projects, especially now that I am on my handmade wardrobe journey and there is more chance I will actually wear my finished object (FO). The other great part of it is that you get to start another project and that is always such a joy.

I made this shawl as part of the Crafts from the Cwtch Make-Along. The idea was to crochet or knit a shawl using a construction you hadn’t used before, which is such an awesome idea. Since I had been wanting to try one of the patterns from The Shawl Project by Joanne Scrace I though this was the perfect opportunity and started looking for which one to choose. I realised then that when it comes to crochet shawls, I haven’t really worked any of them that haven’t used tunisian crochet (weird right?) so any of them would be a new construction for me. So I decided to go with the one that first caught my attention after I bought the book, the Transposition shawl.

This shawl is worked from the centre-out and the pattern becomes more open as you work your way down. It is so gorgeous! I used Titus 4ply by Eden Cottage Yarns in the colour Marigold and I love this colour so much. Now, I had been wanting to try a yellow-gold-mustardy colour for ages now, but I always thought it wouldn’t go with my South American complexion. When I saw this yarn on Victoria’s Instagram feed though, I knew I had to try it. I figured that a shawl would be a smart way to see if the colour suited me and if it didn’t I could give it to someone as a gift. It turns out I can pull off this colour, yay! I see a gold cardigan in my future… 🙂

This pattern was so quick to make, it only uses one 100g skein of 4-ply yarn so you can use something a bit more luxurious without having to invest too much money in the project, I definitely recommend you try the pattern.

Have you finished anything recently? Would love to hear what you are working on 🙂

  1. This is absolutely stunning! The colours, the stitches, wow! This yarn really makes the design sing out. I’m making a pebble beach shawl for the make along and had to start over this week as I went wrong. Enjoying it though! X

    1. Thank you so much Becca, I am very happy with how it turned out 🙂 I have seen that pattern, it is beautiful! Will be on the look out for your FO! Hope you get some time over the weekend to catch up on the pattern again, having to rip out is not nice but oh so necessary sometimes hahaha

    1. Thank you Melissa, I am so glad it looks good on me since I didn’t want to have to give it away! hahaha I definitely recommend both the yarn and the pattern, it was a joy to work on 🙂

  2. Wow, Solen! It is positively stunning! Love the colour 😊 I read your post at the cottage and couldn’t download the pictures. I was excited reading about how excited you were about it. Now that I am home and I can see the pictures, too, I am totally impressed. You definitely have a talent for matching yarn to project. I’m sure you’ll enjoy this one! Blessings, Cyndy
