The pattern for the Circaetus shawl is now also available in Spanish!
It’s the perfect time for me to discuss this pattern in detail. Today I invite you to explore the stitch patterns I chose for Circaetus.
After having fallen in love with the yarn Balayage (see my article about the yarn, published yesterday), I wanted to showcase the yarn in a crochet pattern.
One of the reasons for my fascination with crochet is the ease with which you can obtain more sophisticated versions of basic stitch patterns, using simple variations.
One of these variations is to insert your hook in one loop only in the stitch in the row below (rather than under both loop, which is the standard technique).
The stitch patterns in Circaetus are composed of basic stitches such as chains, single crochets and double crochets. However, by inserting my hook in the front loop only of these stitches, I obtained both subtle but clear texture and beautiful drape.
Create your own crochet stitch patterns!
I’m working on an online course to help you develop your own, original stitch patterns based on existing ones.

To celebrate the publication of the pattern in Spanish, I’m putting out a special, time-limited offer:
When you purchase simultaneously the Circaetus pattern (in the language of your choice) and 4 balls of Balayage (the amount needed to make the shawl), the pattern is free. All you need to do is to put the Circaetus pattern and 4 balls of Balayage in your cart on my website – the price for the pattern will be deducted before your payment.
Please note that this is a time-limited offer, applicable only to orders placed before midnight on Sunday February 12, 2023 (Paris time).
Also, please note that shipping may be a bit delayed because of my participation in the Love Yarn Madrid show in Spain, which will require quite a few days away from the office.
