To celebrate the launch of the gorgeous new Candy Swirl yarn cakes, from Stylecraft, I have designed this beautiful, cosy, shawl.
When the lovely folk at Stylecraft told me, they had a new yarn coming out, I, of course, got very excited. 😊
The name Candy Swirl, started “Allsorts” of ideas racing round in my head, I started to think of sweets from my childhood, what could I “Maltesers” you all with, that wouldn’t cost you a “Penny Chew”, there was a “Galaxy” of “bon-bons” to choose from…hehehe “snickers”. I knew I had to play it “smartie” to find the right stitches, so here is the “kinder surprise”.

♥ The Bubble-gum shawl is a very simple pattern repeat, using US terms Double-Crochet and Bobble stitches, and a fabulous bobble border, designed to be made with Stylecraft Candy Swirl double knit yarn, using a 4mm hook.
♥ You will need 3 Candy Swirl cakes in your chosen colourway.
Finished Size: approx. 64 inches x 36 inches/162cm x 92cm
♥ I used Blueberry Gum, as I wanted to wear mine with jeans, for a casual but glam look.
Yarn Packs, available in My Deramores Shop.
The pack includes 3 cakes of your chosen colour way, there is a drop down box for you to choose.
And also at Woolwarehouse.
