Aubergine Prayer Shawl

Aubergine, isn't that a wonderful word, it congers up all kinds of images of regal velvet robes.   Last week I finished #8 Prayer Shawl, using Deborah Norville's Everyday yarn in luscious aubergine. Using a crosshatch stitch that I derived from a scarf pattern that I had made previously.  I increased the starting chain length to get the proper width and used my favorite J hook.  Love the way it turned out and will definitely use this pattern again. 

You can find the original scarf pattern here on Ralvery.

We had a very quiet Memorial Day, so I got a good start on the next Prayer Shawl, more on that shawl soon.

Remember, yarn is cheaper than therapy.
