Crochet a versatile Downton Abbey inspired shawl! The pattern is now available as a paid pdf download. The pattern is no longer free in a week-by-week format. More crochet/knit-with-me-while-I-design patterns will be coming soon. They are free only while I design the pattern, and once finished they become paid patterns. They will be announced first on my Facebook Page, G+, Twitter, & Pinterest.
Tea With Lady Grantham is the same shape and size as the “Lady Edith’s London Nights” shawl/wrap.
Are you a knitter, as well as crocheter? If so, you will want to make the knitted Downton Abbey Mystery KAL 2014, the design by Kristen Ashbaugh-Helmreich that inspired the shape and textures of this crocheted shawl. Check out all the projects and the Jimmy Beans Wool Group on Ravelry, where there are lots of photos to inspire your yarn choices if you knit one! Ravelry is free to join, and you’ll find thousands of patterns, groups for help and company, and inspiration for your next project.
Don’t forget, though, that the knitted Downton Abbey Mystery KAL 2014 shawl uses worsted weight yarn. I did not use worsted weight for my crochet shawls–crochet stitches are much denser and larger than knit stitches, and to get the same size as my shawls (Lady Grantham and the Lady Edith’s London Nights) you must use a sock/fingering weight yarn. As I have learned, the stitch definition tends to be ‘lost’ in the multi-coloured yarn I used for Lady Edith, so when you are choosing a yarn remember that a lighter coloured, solid-coloured yarn will show the stitch textures more than a hand-painted or multi-colour yarn. Your LYS is a great place to ask for help in choosing yarns!
