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!

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

  12. 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.

  13. I always enjoy visiting your site!!

  14. 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.
