The 'Celebration Shawl' was designed by Doris Chan and the pattern published in the January 2004 issue of Crochet Magazine.
The original yarns used are now discontinued so I substituted Wendy 'Party' in Camel #556 for the main panels, and Sirdar FOXY Badger for the fur trim. It is beautifully soft and warm.
My only problem with the pattern was on Row 3, a very simple row, but it could have been a bit more explicit with the instruction over the central part of the row where two increases take place. I finally figured out what I should be doing by examining the pattern photo with a magnifying glass.
I have two more shawls to crochet from this pattern, one for a friend in the USA and one for my eldest daughter. Several friends here in North Yorkshire have taken a liking to it also.
I obtained the Wendy 'Party' yarn from Kemps online shop, it was on special offer at 69 pence per 50g skein.
and the Sirdar FOXY came from Linda at:
