Baby shawl, my latest Craft Project

My latest craft project

Crocheted baby shawl

I had some left over wool from a past project, which had been sitting in my knitting basket waiting for a new project inspiration

I sat down with my crochet hook and started with just a simple double crochet

I got hooked (pardon the pun) and just kept going round and round.

 Then I started treble crochet and created a scalloped edge,which I think just adds a little, pretty finish

I didn't really know in the

beginning what it would be,but it became obvious as It got bigger,and the colour white lent inself to a baby shawl.

As I make Christening gowns, I thought a shawl would be appropriate.

I may just open an Etsy shop.

What do you think?

That's beautiful! It really would be perfect with a christening gown. I love the scalloped edge.
