WIP Wednesday 5


Bit of a brief post this week as I am away at my mums. This week I have been working some more on my Tunisian crochet blanket and have finished the next colour on it (only 5 more stripes to go)



I also started last night a Bavarian style crochet shawl. I have tried to pick some summery colours for this one as I already have quite a few dark coloured shawls and thought light colours would be nice for a change.


I still have all the rest of the things on the go I had last week as well apart from the knitting needle roll I finished last week.

For more WIP please see Tamis Blog I will try and look at everyone else's through today as I get chance :)

  7. I've never heard of Bavarian style crochet, but I love the start you've made on that shawl---the motif looks interesting and the colours are lovely.

  9. thanks everyone for the lovely comments,

    Denise the patterns is from a book called Learn to do Bavarian Crochet. It has a few different patterns for blankets, a shawl, bag, waistcoat in. It basically uses the same stitch for everything so once you figure that out its fairly straight forward to do. I think on ravelry the same stitch in a blanket is also called the wooleater pattern
