Lace Shawl Anat from El Club de la Calceta, a crochet pattern with a versatile design to wear all the seasons

Hello, I am Carmen Gómez, the hands, the head and the heart of El Club de la Calceta. At the moment I combine my job as a tourist guide with my studies to became a museum curator and my passion for handmade works. After living in Sweden for a year, I come back in Spain and I moved to Toledo where I didn’t know anyone. Back than, the weekends seemed never-ending… Until one day I bought some yarn and needles! It’s two years that crochet become my passion. I love to design shawls, I consider them versatile garments that you can wear all year around. For this reason I’m happy to share with you the lace shawl Anat pattern, made with Katia Tencel-Merino. Surely a garment, with a versatile design, ideal to wear all around the seasons.

El Club de la Calceta

I started designing, because following patterns was never my thing. The first sweater I knitted was for my father, made following a pattern by Katia, with Katia Azteca. He still wears it because it’s warm even if the sleeves have come to his knees! El Club de la Calceta begun as a therapy for my anxiety and loneliness, but it has become something more. It allowed me to meet wonderful people that I admire and that I can call friend. It also gave me the opportunity to be part of an incredibly special community. For this, it is an honour to be part of  Katia Craft Lovers and share with you the pattern of the lace shawl Anat.

Crochet Lace Shawl

The Anat shawl, takes its name from the Egyptian goddess, wife of the god Ra and goddess of wisdom, war and love… I couldn’t choose another one! I’ve designed it thinking about eternity. For this I suggest wearing this garment as a shawl or as a neckerchief in both winter and summer. As you can see, it’s a triangular lace scarf, very versatile, thanks also to Tencel-Merino yarn Concept by Katia.
