Stripes by EclatDuSoleil: A Striped Life

It’s not only in her latest pattern Blue Song that EclatDuSoleil/Hélène Marcy plays with crochet stripes!

In the pattern A Striped Life, Hélène plays with narrow stripes on three versions of a shawl with different borders.

To create one-row stripes without cutting the yarn each time, Hélène explains her method in the pattern. I provide you with an alternative in my crochet tutorial from June 2014.

The shawls were crocheted by Hélène in fingering weight yarn from her stash, comparable to my fingering weight merino, the Zauberball 100 or Balayage.

The pattern for A Striped Life, including three different versions, is available in the shop.
