Cold Shoulders

I decided recently to make a little present for my grandmother (nobody else appreciates hand-made presents quite as much), and had fixed on the idea of some sort of shawl or wrap.  So I began my quest for a pattern, and had lined up a few things that I liked and would be quite quick for me to knit.  Then I realised that this was the perfect opportunity to tackle one of my crafting new year’s resolutions – to crochet something other than a granny square.  I reset the filters on ravelry and went off on another search, where I eventually came up with Cold Shoulders. The pattern is a little cape, with lots of rows of shell stitch. My version is made in Wendy Mode DK, which has to be my favourite low budget yarn – it is a 50/50 merino/acrylic blend, and available from my LYS for £2 a ball.

As you can see, I’ve got a few rows of shells left to do, but I’m really enjoying crocheting something a bit more substantial.
