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.

thank you for all the good suggestions (see comments), i have tried many different stitches, flowers and more and i also have tried different colors, but there was nothing i was happy with. so, at the end i have decided to leave the gaps between the motifs the way they are.

i made ​​four rows of medaillons and the short ends of the drape are diagonal, but i do not know whether the result is very well.

anyway, it should be finished on friday because i want to send it to my mother that day. sunday is her birthday and she will be 82! 

friday i will post more pictures of the finished orange drape for you to see and judge:)

hope to see you soon!
