Hey there Piper.
As a designer, I spend a lot of time researching stitches, garments, fashion trends, colors, etc. With this design, I didn’t have to do any of that! In a sense, this piece chose me!
On Mondays, I meet with a wonderful group of girls for a Crochet/Knit date. When my friend Torey came in a few weeks ago, I could not stop staring at the beautifully draped shawl around her neck! I immediately asked about it. I HAD to see it up close. She, being a fiber lover like myself, even let me squish it in my hands.
I needed it!
..and of course, her’s was knit.
Story of my life!
I searched the internet far and wide for something/anything similar in the crochet world and when I came up short, I went on a mission to design one. I wanted every crochet artist in the world to have this amazingness around their neck or on their shoulders.
The yarn was a no-brainer for me! Dreamers plied yarn is an amazing fingering weight yarn. It’s my go-to for lightweight designs. So with that, I put hook-to-yarn..
Alas, The Piper ParaShawl was born!
And just look at that drape!
Can you do this in heavier yarns? Sure! Go for it! In fact, I had a couple testers play around with some Lion Brand Mandala and they came out beautifully; but I have to say, there is something about the weight and the squish that is so phenomenal in a Fingering weight. So, don’t fear the light weight yarns. This is a simple/mindless/binge-worthy repeat and it is so worth it!!
This is the first in a series of ParaShawls!! I am obsessed. I hope you guys love it too!
Let me know your thoughts!!!
Until next time,
