Klaziena Shawl


This project was a long time coming. I started it on Christmas Eve, as a gift to myself, what with the news of Craftster closing and whatnot. The pattern is called the Klaziena Shawl, by Kirsten Bishop, and it’s free. One of the nice things about the pattern is that it comes with options for making it as a triangle, or a rectangle.

The yarn is Scheepjes Whirl in the color Green Tea Tipple. I finished the last row with about 20" of yarn to spare! I love when that happens. While I am very happy with how it came out overall, it was a bit of a slog. The repeat is about 12 rows long, and not easy to remember, so you really have to keep an eye on your pattern. Plus the yarn is so thin and the hook so small (3.5mm) that it just takes forever. If I were to make it again, I’d try it with a thicker yarn, and larger hook, and do one less repeat of the pattern.

The pattern is stunning and so is the yarn!

My friend is called Klaziena and we sometimes make fun of her name (in a friendly way). Maybe I should make it for her!

Wow! You couldn’t have asked for that yarn to look any better- that gradient and the colorway are perfect for that stitch pattern. Excellent choice and what a nice thing it gets to live in your world rather than shipped off to parts unknown. Lovely work!

Beautiful and very soothing. I can see sitting on a porch or by the sea on a cool evening wrapped in this shawl.

This is beautiful! I keep forgetting that this pattern is in my list of things to crochet. Probably because it needs so much yardage, and I don’t have anything handy in the stash.
