There’s only one thing to say about this shawl…
Okay, maybe there’s more than just one thing to share about this shawl. For starters, it’s absolutely breathtakingly gorgeous. Don’t believe me? Check out these photos:
To make this shawl, I’ve used Tahki Alden yarn in dark teal. It’s not a very adventurous name for a yarn color, but trust me when I say that this is the prettiest color of yarn I have ever used. The deep blue and green tones remind me of the ocean, and the rich darkness of the color is perfect for the kraken!
The stitch used for the main part of the shawl is filet crochet. It may look intimidating, but it’s incredibly easy to learn! In this pattern, I’ve included all kinds of notes, charts/diagrams, and even a link to a video tutorial on the filet crochet technique. If you can do a chain stitch and a double crochet stitch, then you can make this shawl!
