I usually make these in one color but I wanted to see how it would work using two colors. I loved the blue color with the white. So I did twelve rows of blue and six rows of white alternating to the border which I then did in blue. I think it turned out great. In fact when I took it to our women’s meeting at church last Saturday, it was chosen immediately to be given to someone special. I love using my hands to bless others.
The color combination worked so well, I decided to try it on a second shawl with the same pattern. I used a sage green as the main color and added alternating rows of the aqua color and white. The picture doesn’t do it justice as the sage is a gorgeous shade.
But I’m going to give crocheting a rest for a while as I’m learning how to do Portuguese Knitting with classes on Craftsy.com
I love this way of knitting. The tension is even and I’ve always had a problem with tension. Also, it requires very little arm movement. Mostly it is flicking the thumb to move the yarn into proper position. It is easy and fast, too.
So now I’m going to be searching for some knitted prayer shawls to make. In the mean time, I’m working on a beret for me to wear this winter while learning the technique.
Until next time, happy hooking!
