31 Pins: Day 4

Welcome to day 4!!  I finished this one very early this morning (or late last night) as a birthday gift to my mom.  We saw something similar at the arts festival this summer (for $100!!!) made from bamboo yarn.  I said that I could make something similar, and mom put in her order. :)

I had to do a little research on yarn and stitches since I am very inexperienced in crocheting.  My Gram taught me way back when, and I never moved past a single stitch.  Thanks to Youtube, Amazon, and Pinterest, I found what I needed.

Original pin:
This is one that I found - needle in a haystack - and used as an inspiration.

For the yarn, I used Paton's Lace Yarn in Patina .  And here is the link to the stitch I used: .  It took me several weeks, only being able to work in the evenings after the kids were in bed.  I started out a little rocky on the ends, but then got my act together, haha.  It is very versatile and can be worn at least 6 different ways that I can think of.

I had always wanted to be a model of some sort.  And now I am an aspiring photographer.  However, I did not want to be both at the same time.  But when you have no choice, you do what you have to!

The results:

the shawl

the double wrap

the vest

the twist

the reverse shawl

the hood

Success!  She likes it!  Now I need to make one for myself and a little one for E. :)

Expense rating: less than $10
Difficulty rating: easy if you know how to crochet, moderate if you don't
