The shawl isn’t actually salty, but the colour of the yarn is called ‘Salty Grey’ so it kinda stuck with me. This thing took aaaaaaaaaaaaaaages of crocheting the same pattern, row after row. I almost went insane by the end. It’s over 6 feet long but to be honest, it could probably have done with another skein’s worth of length on it, as when I throw it over my shoulder a la Cruella de Ville, it has a tendency to slip down. Maybe a cool brooch is needed… I don’t know if I can face adding any more length as it might just send me over the edge!

One of these days I’ll get someone to take a photo of me wearing it, as it does look rather pretty when worn. The cool thing is that grey goes with everything, so I know it will get a lot of wear. Plus it’s s very soft merino wool which feels great on the skin, and it has a beautiful drape.

The pattern is one I found on Ravelry here – a very popular pattern, and for good reason. If you can face the boredom of the long project, then it’s really pretty easy and the results are fab.
