Crocodile Stitch Shawl

I think this will be my last catch up post for today! I have to go back to life choruses... make the bed, clean up a little bit, maybe some hooky time, set up my Etsy store, and I want to make mint meringues and maybe go to Hobby Lobby!

But before leaving I want to show you my new Shawl in progress...

After I finished my bag I was still too excited with the crocodile stitch and wanted to make something else... I have seen some shawls in Ravelry, so I went to Hobby Lobby and got a skein of Patons Lace... and put my hands to it!

It knid of started as a triangular shawl but at some point I decided it would be better a rectangular one, so I started to increase just on one side of the shawl and as a result I got this:
I LOVE how the self striping yarn looks... here's a close up:
You stil can see the stitch and have also the color stripes effect... I love it...

For my bag I used dc through the project, but for this shawl I'm using trebles... it makes it more open and I like the look of it... I must say that this is a yarn eater stitch!!!! and I think it will be a very warm shawl and maybe a little bit heavy!

I'll share with you my progress of it, but right now is hibernating a bit because I got caught with a knitting project in the middle! no less!

I'll tell you about it next time!

I have to go, but I'll be back soon! it feels great to be back on track!
Don't forget my giveaway!

and... See you soon!


  1. I think this shawl is amazing! I love the colours and the pattern you used. I'm trying to get myself together to sort out an etsy shop too but it is proving to be quite hard :)

  2. The shawl is AMAZING! I love, love, love it! Great job! ♥

  3. Shanti, that pattern is really cool. To me they look more like leaves than a crocodile. :-)

    You're doing wonderful work with it!

    Hugs, Teresa
