Finished Mystery Shawl

Finished the shawl today, although I decided rather than do a standard cast off, I crocheted it. Now, I am not a crochet man, and this is the first real time I have done it. I have produced chains in the past that were tighter than cramp, however, this binding off seems perfectly done, which was more of a shock than anything else. I had seen a woman doing that binding off on Instagram, and thought it would be a nice finish. Who knew I would manage to get it right first time.

The pattern was from The Knitting Circle, Mystery KAL.

    Wow, a crochet cast off! I’ve only just learned how to crochet after nearly 60 years. My crochet tends to look like overcooked spaghetti.

      To be honest Tony my crochet looks like knots normally and as mentioned tighter than cramp. My problem is that I’m never sure if I should be right handed or left handed at it as nether feels right, which is confusing as I’m ambidextrous. I’m determined to learn though.

    I bet that gives it a nice smooth edge. The shawl looks wonderful.

      It did. I was pleasantly surprised by the finish and glad I went with my gut to do it that way.
