How have you been? Thanks so much for your lovely comments on my knitting post!
For those of you who have been wondering if I had given up on crochet - this post is especially for you! This time I will show you some interesting crochet shawls and links to the patterns!
Interesting Crochet Shawl patterns
1) The Virus Shawl
I can't tell you how much this pattern demanded to be made! Almost every time I go on pinterest, I seem to come across this pattern. So I put this on my ideas list until I had finished some other projects first. I had already bought the yarn in Germany.
The pattern is on ravelry, of course and it is free!

The yarn I am using is lace yarn by Zitron, called Filigran Lace. It is super thin and fine pure merino wool and the colours are amazing!
The colours are really as vibrant as the first and last photo. (Some days the day light is not great for taking photos!)
2) Fortune's Shawlette
I first mentioned about this shawl in a recent blog post here.
Here is the Fortune's Shawlette! It's from another fantastic crochet designer, Tamara Kelly, better known as Moogly. You can also find all her many (and often free) patterns on ravelry.
So far I have used 2x 100g skeins of the lovely soft Merino wool, and I'm about to start my last skein!
3) The South Bay Shawlette
Some of you might remember that I have used this pattern quite a few times, because I love how you can use it for different kinds of yarn, different thicknesses etc. I love variegated colourful yarn best!
A lot of you really liked this version here from a previous post.
The South Bay Shawlette is from Lion Brand, you will find the free pattern here.
Sometimes incredible things happen, such as finding the new sock yarn by Arne and Carlos (shade 03653 - shown in large) and then coming across another yarn in matching colours - Kidsilk Haze Stripe by Rowan (Shade 202). Kid silk Haze is an amazing soft fuzzy and light Kid mohair yarn with 30% Silk added. It feels very luxurious!
I couldn't think of a better pattern to use these 2 yarns together! The colour effects are simply stunning! (these photos don't do them enough justice!)
And here are all three shawls together!

I find it really interesting to look at a pattern on ravelry and then check out the different versions that people have made from the same pattern! It really is very inspirational!
If you haven't tried pinterest before, I urge you to give it a go! It opens up a whole new world of ideas and patterns, lots of them for free. For example, if you click on one image, it shows a whole lot of similar and complimentary patterns below.
