crocheted orange drape


the orange drape is finished!


it has a double edge and therefore ​​it became a little curly. the edge i also made ​​a little different than is written in the pattern and instead of three rows, i have made four rows of medallions​​. 

the shawl drapes beautifully and i think it will be quite chic in a natural color. it’s an easy pattern to follow with good charts, but i did not really have fun making it and so i was glad i was done with it, not sure why. the pattern is from the 2012 vogue knitting crochet special, which i have on my ipad.

as usual, i have too many pictures a serie of pictures for you to see, i’m curious to your opinion about the drape.

if you like, just click on the photos to see them in a larger size.

hope you will have a lovely and sunny weekend!

  1. I like this so much. You crochet beautifully, and the color combination is striking. I would never think to combine colors the way you do, but I wish I did! You seem to have a knack for feeling what colors will work together.

  2. I always enjoy visiting your site!!

  3. It does drape beautifully! The orange color looks delicate in this style, not at all overwhelming the way orange can be sometimes. Nice results, even if the process wasn’t exciting.

  4. I think it’s gorgeous – the drape is perfect for a wrap. 🙂

  5. This is the one of the most beautiful pieces I think I have ever seen! The color you have chosen is absolutely exquisite and when I saw your pictures I was attracted to this piece immediately. Its such a sunny, happy piece and makes me want to smile. Lovely work. ❤

  12. it is beautiful – and really drapes well…I may just have to make myself one, although I am not as bold as your Mum and may have to go for black…

  13. I would like to do it to. Can you write to me from which magazine exactly you have it?

  14. Prachtig! Zo te zien is het ook heerlijk om om je heen te draperen; het valt erg mooi – super!
