I’m so excited to show you my Morpho shawlette, just off the hook with ends still dangling!
I looove its slightly ruffled two-row border,
which I think is far better looking than the “nice, simple scalloped edging” advertised in the pattern description! lol. I plan to gently wet block the shawl’s body in hopes of preserving as much of that ruffle as I can.
I also loove those slightly curved tips.
After doing about eighteen repeats of Morpho’s easy two-row pattern – remember, I’m using 8/2 cotton thread – it measures 23 inches (58cm)
by about 53 inches (1.35cm).
Never having made a shawl before, I thought this sounded plenty large until I actually tried it on. That’s when I decided I want my Morpho to be larger. I promised to contribute a shawl to the charity auction and this is definitely still, in my eyes anyway, a shawlette.
For once ripping back isn’t going to be terribly upsetting. All I’m going to lose is Morpho’s lovely two-row border and that’s an even easier pattern than the two-row main pattern. No, Really!!
But I don’t know how large to go. Guess I’ll just keep crocheting and trying it on until it says Shawl. lol.
