Psychedelic Shrubs Shawl was created to show how hand dyed yarn can be used to make a shawl
‘Psychedelic’ in the shawl name refers to how crazy neon KAIJUU Blood was and ‘Shrubs’ was referring to the flowers and leaves under the green section. I wanted a subtle flower to make the shawl slightly textured.
I opted for the front/back post double crochet to create ridges that will slightly lift off from the boring endless double crochet. I would say this shawl is a good and quick mindless project!
