Custard Cream Shawl Pattern

I just love the colours used in this shawl. It’s the Scheepjes Whirl in Blackcurrant Squeeze Me, another Whirl I just HAVE to buy, not that I need a huge amount of arm twisting to buy yarn. It’s an addiction don’t ya know 😜<

he pattern is my latest design, The Custard Cream Shawl it’s in both UK and US crochet terms and now it’s also available in Swedish thanks to the fabulous Anna for translating, check her out on Instagram.

absolutely LOVE designing patterns and I’m so chuffed I finally started actually writing them down and getting them out there. I’ve been crocheting and knitting since I was about 7years old. My mam and my nana taught me and I’ve loved it ever since. (I’m 46 now! 😳) <

was the kid who made my dolls clothes instead of actually playing with the dolls 😂 I also pretty much hid that I did it and only people close to me knew. I think it’s because I didn’t know anyone else who shared my passion, so I just didn’t speak about it. Weird I know! 😂 <br

older, I started talking about it more, but only if people mentioned they liked my jumper or my scarf etc and when I said, “I made this”, they were like, “wow, really? So clever, I wish I could do that!” <br
nge how our thoughts roll when we’re young. Anyhoo, luckily, today, it’s a cool thing to be able to knit or crochet. I LOVE ❤️ that! And I’ve even managed to teach one or two of my friends the art of crochet 👌🏻👏🏻 and most recently my daughter , Hannah, who is 25! She’s never shown an interest until recently, but, at last, she said those magic words “teach me how to crochet” YES! 👊🏻
