A few years ago, a dear friend of mine made me a beautiful Irish Chain quilt. With gorgeous fabrics. Of beautiful blues. And ticking on the underside. QUEEN-sized. It truly is one of my most treasured possessions.
Since then, I have written a crochet pattern inspired by this quilt, called Irish Chain. It's a modular pattern, featuring a join-as-you-go technique.
To test the pattern, I crocheted this beautiful sample using Canon Hand Dyes gorgeous set of mini skeins, glorious colors which beautifully replicate the hues in my quilt. I decided to bifurcate the shawl to give the piece a modern twist. The solid half is the dyer's choice to pair with the mini skeins - a shade called Watermark, which is at times minty green, at others hinty blue. I adore the subtle sophistication to this hue!
This scarf is comprised of tiny squares, attached at the corners. The result of this technique is a modern, airy wrap with a beautiful drape. Pair it with a white dress for an evening walk in the summer or a jean jacket as seasons change. Or wrap it in half, tuck the ends through the middle and wear it under your down jacket to fend of wintery winds. It's an eye-catching stunner, no matter the season!
