a girl and her 'princess wrap'

prayer shawl

Well... I have finished the prayer shawl for the Make It Pink challenge. I was originally planning to make it for myself, but decided that Little Miss Four would get more wear out of a garment this pink than what I would! Mind you, she doesn't think of it as a prayer shawl. To her it is a Princess Wrap.

Because I was making a much smaller size, I only worked the increases until I had 69 stitches on my needles and then worked the top border. I probably could have made it a tiny bit bigger, but the stitch pattern has a surprising amount of stretch to it... much more than I was expecting.

Instead of a button, I crocheted a pink daisy to embellish the front of the wrap.

It looks lovely. The colours came out beautifully together and the crochet flower is perfect.

sam - the pinks really did blend nicely... and it will match EVERYTHING in my daughter's wardrobe... because everything she owns is PINK!

I just finished a crocheted scarf for a friend yesterday and it is almost that same identical color. I think it looks nice =)
