One of the things I like best about crochet is how flexible it is. First, I found and posted the beautiful Finnish shawl. Then a friendly reader, Christina, translated the pattern for us (see Comments Section of the link above). Then Wanda emailed me with a picture of how she interpreted the pattern to create a lovely and unique scarf as a gift for a teen girl. I love it! From across the world and across the internet, we are able to share our love of crochet and our various adaptations of a pattern. I’m so glad Wanda sent this to me! I hadn’t thought to downsize the beautiful Finnish Shawl for a scarf – but guess what my next project will be!
