We live in a wonderful time for crochet design. The internet has opened up our world and the possibilities are endless. Take a look at this design, for example.
This beautiful triangular shawl was designed by Christina Adorjan of Austria.
I don’t know anyone from Austria except Arnold Schwarzenegger and you really can’t count him among my close friends no matter how many times he assures me that he’ll be back. And, I doubt that he crochets anyway.
Twenty years’ ago, I would have no chance whatsoever of being able to chat with Christina Adorjan, much less see or try out one of her crochet patterns. But, here we are. We’re in the age of the internet and anything seems possible.
This is a lovely lace design which uses less than 600 yards of a sport weight alpaca yarn. The name is German for “Night Garden”. Such a beautiful name for a beautiful shawl.
The pattern itself is available in chart only. I strongly encourage you to try to read a chart, if you haven’t already.
The only skill you need to read a crochet chart is to count. You just look at the little circles at the bottom, count them and then chain that number. You count the little circles you will skip. Then, you’ll count the number of double crochets. It’s as simple as that and you’ll be making your own Night Garden Shawl in no time at all.
This shawl starts at the point and works toward its full width which means that you can simply start then continue as long as you like.
You can use any yarn you like for a project like this so feel free to experiment with different fibers and different yarn weights.
