Coral Reef Shawl
I designed the Coral Reef Shawl for the competition “2016 Spring, Future Faces of Crochet”. It won the Fan’s Choice Award for the age group 11 – 16. Kimera is a fancy cotton yarn that has a charismatic sequence of colors and shades; in contrast, that boost an original self-patterning design.
This is a quick and easy pattern, I used a G hook and basic crochet stitches along with a special version of the picot stitch to make this Coral Reef Shawl. It’s a pretty simple pattern and the yarn works up really nicely. It’s perfect for the summer because it’s light weight and is open. Great for a night out! I hope you enjoy it!
