Crochet shawl with shapes and textures 🍓 Berry Dream 2024 CAL

20 March, 2024

If you love crochet, join the next 2024 Katia CAL. Have fun making the Berry Dream shawl in two new colors of Katia Fair Cotton! Learn new techniques thanks to this original crochet pattern designed by Laura @knitandpepper.

Play with shapes and textures  

“The Berry Dream shawl is inspired by the beautiful things in life for me. It combines my favorite color, in two charming tones of Fair Cotton, with geometric shapes like triangles and circles. What I am most excited about lately is working with textures to add three-dimensional shapes to pieces. The triangular inspiration is reflected in the shawl construction, where textures like circles, flowers and oval lace are present everywhere.” Laura @knitandpepper
