Part 2

Part 2 has now been released.  Link is below.  As you work on your final section, the trim, think of all the lovely mermaids this beautiful shawl was named after.  When complete, envelop yourself in its warmth, and envision yourself,  in a beautiful, tranquil environment.  If gifting, you can smile now, another gift complete.

Happy December everyone!!  Thank you again Divina Rocco for your beautiful pattern.

Please share your photos when complete.  Here is another beautiful one from one of our testers.  I love these colors, reminds me of a beautiful ocean, far away.

Part 1

This beautiful shawl pattern is now available for purchase at a minimal price at Divina Rocco’s Ravelry page.  Definitely well worth it and a shawl/scarf you will be sure to make more than one of.  Thank you, Divina!  On behalf of the team at CAL, we thank you for this gorgeous pattern.

The pattern works up quickly and beautifully.  Part 1 is the body of the shawl and part 2 is the trim.  Here are some examples from our testers.

Intro:

If you are like me, you can never have too many shawls.  They are so versatile to use, and are great for gift giving.  Today we introduce a really pretty one, designed by Divina Rocco.  The Makara shawl is made in two parts, the body, and the trim, so within 2 weeks, you can have the perfect gift all set for the holidays.  Read the bio and intro below to find out about the designer, as well as what Makara actually means.    Trust me, it is very interesting.  Supply list is included along with crochet terms used, so you can get set. Have a mandala yarn ready?   One cake can make one shawl.  You can also adjust size per your preference.

I made one myself, to test, and will have to make more as I am keeping it for me. I used 2 Caron Cakes.   It is one of those projects that is repetitive and relaxing once you get the hang of it, so should go fast.

 

Part 1 will be released on December 6, and Part 2 on December 13.
