With a little poetic license, Nimbus & Light re-creates Belinda's Cirrus and Shadow. Crocheted with 2 different yarns in weight, style and colour this shawl has interesting flow and texture.
A real play on words here (I did say poetic license!) - Cirrus are light wispy clouds, Nimbus are darker and denser, which describes the difference between the motifs on Belinda's knitted shawl and my
This crocheted shawl begins with the darker Nimbus section made with Warm Cobblestone, which is chased away by the lighter, softer Light Moonshine, which is a delight to wrap closely around you.
Six strips of motifs (9 rows in each) form the
Nimbus section. Starting with one motif
increasing by two each strip, ending with 11
in the final strip.
