Coral Reef Shawl
By Gracie Bush
The Coral Reef Shawl was designed for the competition “2016 Spring, Future Faces of Crochet”. It won the Fan’s Choice Award for the age group 11 – 16. I saw the Adriafil, Kimera, Egyptian cotton at my LYS and I knew that I had to make something out of it as the texture was wonderful. Kimera is a fancy cotton yarn that has a charismatic sequence of colors and shades; in contrast, that boost an original self-patterning design.
