FO Friday: Tulpen Crochet Shawl Ta-dah!

It's all very busy and exciting here as I'm packing my bags for Unravel (if you're coming and missed yesterday's post, take a look here). I just have time to give you a quick look at the finished 'Tulpen' Crochet Shawl made from Scheepjes Vinci.

You can see I've used a very simple stitch pattern to let the colours do all the work for me and as it's a basic rectangle shape, can be worn in different ways. Just wrap it around and stick a pin in it - my favourite type of accessory!

This was my first crochet project for a very long time and I really enjoyed it - there may be more to follow. The yarn is lovely to work with, quite 'woolly' (despite being 40% acrylic) and nice to handle, not to mention those great tulip-y colours.

I'd say this project would be suitable for anyone with the most basic crochet skills - you only need to know how to make a chain, a slip stitch and a treble crochet - and it used just a little under 400g of colourway 004. Next week I'll write up the (very simple) instructions, but in the meantime there are yarns to fondle and people to see. Have a great weekend, everyone!
