I have some lovely yarn but don't know what to make with it! What a First World problem, eh? Seriously though, I would really appreciate your opinion on this. Mr P treated me to these stunning skeins of Direwolf Grafitti 4ply from La Bien Aimee on our trip to Paris last year (sorry not sorry, I'm STILL not over it). I decided I'd like to crochet a shawl with it, but have no idea where to start as there are sooo many beautiful designs out there.
The variegation is pretty out there and unlike anything I've made a shawl with before. I want to be careful to pick something that really shows off the yarn without being swallowed up my the colours, if that makes sense?
Here are a couple of contenders. Let me know what you think!
I love Cecile's designs and part of me wonders if a French yarn should have a French design?
The Shawl Project designs are brilliant and this one looks like it could be really versatile to wear.
Urg, it's just so drapey and gorgeous.
I haven't the foggiest!

Oooo I love that yarn, it's gorgeous! I like the Cherry pi shawl best but I think you could make anything with that yarn it's so nice!ReplyDelete
Hi Susie, it's almost too pretty to use - I'm so torn! That's one vote for Cherry Pi so far then! :) xDelete
It's so beautiful that yarn! I think I'd go for the Sea Glass - I like the idea of using a French design for your French yarn and this design is beautiful! However, having made one of Joanne Scrace's patterns (Spirographical) last year, I can say that they are good too. I guess you need to make a decision about the type of construction - whether you want to do motifs or one piece?ReplyDelete
Hi Gill, yes, I remember we were both doing that Makealong! Your shawl was fab! I might try a little motif to see how the colours work out and go from there. :)Delete
Love the yarn and the first yarn :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, really appreciate your view, just cannot decide! :) xDelete
My vote is for the bottom left pattern. Airy and light and the colours won't distract from the pattern.ReplyDelete
Thanks Nadia! I'm gonna wind these skeins and sample a motif to see how the colours sit. :) xDelete
Amazing yarn :) That is a difficult choice ! Wish you happy hooking, bye, Annelies.ReplyDelete
Thanks Annelies - I love your lacy shawl! :) xDelete
How interesting that these are crochet options. Have you checked to see if each was made with variegated yarn?ReplyDelete
