Warmer weather is upon us in South Korea, and I’ve begun taking out my lighter accessories. Here’s a shawl I crocheted last year from a free pattern at Furls. I joined a CAL (crochet—along) with the designer, Sam Casale.
It’s a quick pattern done in filet stitch. I used a Korean sport weight cotton/viscose yarn in mint. I really like this yarn as a choice for light accessories or baby blankets, but it only comes in 30g cakes and I have a hard time getting enough of the color I want in stores. There may be an online source for the yarn though – I’ll have to research.
If you’d like to find this pattern, you could do a search for “Frontier Shawl” at Furls Crochet. The designer is on Instagram: @casalecrafts .
All is well today; laying low as we are still sequestered due to Covid. My online classes have been extended another week, and my uni is locked up during the weekends, so I work from home.
I returned from Tokyo one month ago. So much has changed since then! Here are a couple of photos of cat and dog trinkets at a shop near Senso-ji Temple. The Japanese love their pets. How many dog breeds, or types of animals, can you spot? 🐾❤️
