Faerie Queene Shawl
This shawl was featured at the Crochet Guild of America’s Annual Conference Fashion Show--see top three photos.
This pattern is very vintage inspired. It has design elements of 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; on a faerie dancing in a moonlit forest; or worn over a slinky 1920s black dress with long velvet gloves for an evening’s dancing at a lively jazz club. I drew inspiration from Downton Abbey while designing it.
Pattern includes LOADS OF HELPFUL FULL COLOR PHOTOS, EXCELLENT PROFESSIONAL COLORED CHARTS and PROFESSIONAL WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS. Skill level is intermediate.
Sample shawl measures 21” x 72” - can be made any size.
This shawl is completely customizable so you can make yours completely 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 lengths of the different sections within the shawl, another way of customizing it.
--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.
