Grinda Shawl Make Along


The Grinda Shawl, designed by friend of The Black Sheep Tatsiana Kupryianchyk, was originally done as a Make Along in 2018 on Tatsiana’s blog. A stunning shawl design made with just one yarn cake of Scheepjes Whirl, or three balls of Whirlette, it’s perfect for adventurous beginners and beyond!

Inspired by a boat trip to the Stockholm Archipelago, and celebrating the love of the sea and the wild nature of the small Grinda Island, this is going to be a fabulous project for us all to make together. The pattern is FREE to access from Tatsiana’s own blog ‘Lilla Björn Crochet’ or there is a smaller, more condensed pattern to buy on Ravelry.

Our top tip would be to check your tension! It uses almost a full ball of whirl so don’t get caught short!

The Make Along starts on Saturday 28th August in our Make Along Facebook Group, we'd love you to join us!
