Shawls are great to make with hand dyed yarns or multi-color yarns. Let’s be honest – multi-color yarns don’t always look great in crochet garments. Often they look too busy, not neat and you can’t really see the pattern. I believe the multi-color yarns were created with knitting in mind and usually they do look much better in knits. However, crochet shawl is an exception. I do suggest to choose the yarn with long color changes and my recent discovery is Katia Infinity Shawl (100% merino) yarn. I am not sponsored by Katia, I simply share this because I really loved it. They have great colors, yarn is super soft and it is so fun to work with.
Inspired by this yarn I created my Infinity Shawl. I actually made two shawls – one with Katia’s yarn and another one with a local yarn I had for some time, in a solid color. Let me know which one you prefer! 🙂
