It all started with numerous requests to make a blanket with the fishes at the bottom of my Poppy field blanket, and my drawings were too monotonous for such a size. So, I turned it into a wearable, and made instead this fun, colourful and not least super warm shawl.

I used all 60 colours in a Scheepjes Terrazzo 10g colour pack (approx. 7-8g of each) and 400g of 743 Ardesia for the outlines.

…and comes with a BONUS PATTERN!
Playing with the leftovers, I made these small colourful fish which I attached to the shawl.

Made in Interlocking crochet, this shawl is super entertaining to make. The rows are short and it builds up really quickly. The pattern comes with information on the technique as well as a photo tutorial on how to get started and on how to make the colour changes. If you need extra help, I have video tutorials on this technique:
