A Granny Square Shawl

Hello, lovely people! It's time for another granny-square-related post! Today, I'll share with you a project that's been neglected for a little while after I realised I'd missed a couple of stitches. Isn't it annoying when this happens? And of course, you only realise your mistake ten rows down the line, having to frog hours and hours of arduous work. Grrrrr!!!

Anyway, this particular project is a half granny square shawl, exactly like this one, which I blogged about last year. This new one is made with a variegated yarn I brought back from Finland earlier this year, and here's what it looks like:

And the yarn...

A gorgeous mix of colours, if you ask me!

The shawl is worked in alternated rows of trebles and dcs, with the aim to add a lacy border in due course, most likely in a matching plain colour. 

Here's a closer look at the stitches.

And that's it for this week. Don't forget the challenge at Jijihook's, and I'll see you next week :)
