Create the perfect transition of colour in this crescent-shaped shawl.
Clever colour placement creates a gradual blurring of the lines between each colourway so that there is a gradual change from one to another.
Pattern is written for two sizes with options for either widening or narrowing stripes.
Make your Blurre as calm or as dramatic as you wish.

I wrote this pattern with the purpose of creating a relaxing, rhythmic and calming project. One where you don’t have to concentrate deeply on the instructions, or obsess about stitch counts. You can simply relax into the process and enjoy the colour play. This, to me, is precisely the kind of project that makes crochet my happy place when I need to unwind and find calm after a busy day.
I hope this is what you find for yourself as you make your own Blurre.
