I thought it would be interesting to show how shawl is created from scratch, what happens behind closed doors. I must say, there are reasons why not every pattern is done this way. Since this work was done by me personally, I didn’t quite finish pattern before starting. I will add comment where I did things differently.
I say, it is not. My first shawls were Swallowtails by Evelyn A. Clark and I used heavier lace weight mohair blend. I made one for myself and few for colleagues. I wore mine every winter for years, first on wool coat and later on with leather jacket.
Every pattern has a different fate – some go to explore the world, some become something you can touch or just stay as a file on some cloud. I’ll share story of this shawl, because pattern won’t go exploring and it will be one of a kind.
