so....this is finally done!
I called this shOwl because of the picture of an owl I tried to crochet in the centre of this shawl. I used the Fillet technique (I don't know if this has the same name in English), and a very soft yarn in a vibrant purple, it is the biggest thing I've ever crocheted,and was made completely free hand, without any pattern ,and I'm in love with it!
it's actually pretty small, so I guess I should add a couple of rows all around it.
Comments are appreciated!

I love this! I really want to try filet crochet, but I haven't gotten up the nerve, yet. It sounds easy, but it looks complicated  Tongue

Congrats on making such an awesome project, without a pattern, even! I'm impressed!

thank you!

the fillet was pretty easy to do, actually. I too thought that this would have been hard and complicated, but if you start with thick wool and a big hook it's easier (and you don't run out op patience before it's finished Wink )

I never thought of using thick yarn! That would make it less fussy for me to try out so I could learn. Hmmmm...there is some yarn on sale this week at AC Moore. I'll have to see if any of it is the thick kind.

Thanks for the tip!

Ooooh...I just remembered! I have an obnoxiously bright green skein or two of Thick and Quick. Maybe I can try something with that. Now, to come up with a chart...maybe of a frog...
