Faerie Queene Shawl
This shawl was featured in the Crochet Guild of America’s Annual Conference Fashion Show.
There are no motifs in this pattern, not even join-as-you go. Flowers are easily applied with your choice of how many and where to put them, or you can even leave them off.
I drew inspiration from Downton Abbey when designing this. It is very vintage, featuring design elements from several eras: Victorian (and neo-Victorian/Steampunk), Art Nouveau, Edwardian, and the Roaring 20s.
The shawl would be equally at home wrapped around the shoulders of an Edwardian gown or worn over a slinky 1920s black dress with long velvet gloves for an evening’s dancing at a lively jazz club.
Pattern includes LOADS OF HELPFUL FULL COLOR PHOTOS, EXCELLENT PROFESSIONAL COLORED CHARTS and PROFESSIONAL WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS. Skill level is intermediate or above.
Sample shawl measures 21” x 72” - can be made any size.
This shawl is completely customizable so you can make it uniquely your own:
--You can easily adjust the size,including a great scarf size;* the math is already done for you!*
--Flowers are optional. Or, you can make more or less flowers, and custom-arrange them according to your liking--even experiment with your own free-form scrumbles.
--You can change the size of the different sections of the shawl, and the overall length and width.
--Directions tell you how to make it with or without beads.
Note: Yarn amount, hook and gauge are for Sea Silk at designer’s gauge (provided in pattern). When substituting yarns, adjust accordingly. Pattern gives several yarn substitution suggestions with hook sizes and swatch photos, in the “save, spend, splurge” style.
