Elise Shawl

Small T has her own Pinterest account and once in awhile she will pin a project that she would like me to make.  These projects involve a variety of crafting methods, but she does enjoy a good crochet project once in awhile too.  In fact, the project she most often asks me to make is called the Elise Shawl.  The pattern can be found here .  It's a free Ravelry download.
 I started this shawl last night while watching The Hunger Games movie with Small T.  It's a repetitive pattern and very easy to work once you get the hang the of it.
I finished the shawl this morning and still need to block it out, but it looks pretty good as it is.  (I am definitely blocking it though as she really likes the "points" along the edge.)  
I used a heavier yarn that specified (Simply Soft in Off White - 2 skeins) but it's not overly heavy.  I am actually thinking of making her one using some leftover fingering yarn I have (from a baby blanket project).
This project was another Stash Buster Project for me.  I like that I was able to make this for Small T AND use up some of my yarn stash at the same time!

    1. Jen, I had a bit of trouble figuring it out at first too. If I can help in any way, I'm happy to do it. Trust me, it works up very quickly. And once you get the hang of the two pattern rows, you can do it by heart. :)

    1. Thank you! It is for my daughter. She wanted me to make one for her. She plans to wear it around her neck like a scarf. But with the point facing in front. :) Where do you live in Spain? I hosted an exchange student from Madrid three years ago.
