Circaetus, crochet shawl

I’m very happy to introduce my new design: the shawl Circaetus!

This pattern was inspired by a series of tutorials on the work in one loop only, published this spring in my newsletter. Circaetus is worked almost entirely in the front loop only.

Not only does this add a lovely, subtle texture, but it also makes for a very light and drapey fabric.

Warmth and cozyness are provided by the yarn chosen, Balayage, in baby alpaca and merino.

Head over to the shop to find out more about Circaetus!

When Chantal crochets wool and silk

I received a very inspiring email from my customer and friend Chantal, who said: What a joy to work the London yarn with patterns designed by EclatDuSoleil! London is a laceweight wool and silk yarn, exclusive to my shop.

Here Chantal started by working the center of the Celeste shawl. She got inspired and added the border used in the Silk Scarf shawl. It works so well!

Chantal had already made the Falbala shawl in laceweight bamboo, a lighter weight yarn than called for in the pattern. This time, she went for the even finer London yarn (col: French blue). The result is a beautifully delicate shawl with great contrast between positive and negative space.
