Buy a Mijo Crochet Teaflower Shawl from yay retro today!

One of the most gorgeous crochet shawl patterns in my opinion is the Teaflower Shawl designed by Johanna Lindahl of Mijo Crochet. The great news is that you can buy a Teaflower shawl ready made from yay retro right now in several colour ways. This stunning lightweight crochet shawl is super light and drapes wonderfully so that it can be worn in multiple ways throughout the year.

This versatile shawl looks different depending on the colours it is made in. Here it is in a range of blues - I've called this one 'Forget me Not'

You can wear it as a scarf or cowl draped around your neck on cooler days or as an open shawl on summer days or evenings.....When I made it in the Woodland colours below in sold in 5 minutes!

It's the perfect shawl all year round as it's light enough for Spring and Summer and warm enough to wear in Winter too! Imagine this lovely shawl with your very best dress at a special occasion...I can make it in the colours of your choice via pre-order.

An ideal gift for anyone, this would suit a young festival go-er or an older lady who likes to look stylish!  Check out yay retro! crochet  shawls here.

Crochet Picnic Blankets now at yay retro!

With this sunshine-y weather now is the time to invest in a little picnic blanket from yay retro! I have several one off designs available all at very affordable prices right now.

I beach tested my own yay retro crochet blanket yesterday and it was fab. Very comfy to sunbathe on and also light to roll up and carry.  

It also came in handy as an impromptu shawl on the breezy clifftop!

In the yay retro shop at the moment you can choose from a regular finely crocheted granny blanket with a special love heart centre...

or a detailed granny square blanket done in seaside colours.

I also have the most beautiful and complex pastel orange crochet blanket for sale....This has a circular centre with every row being a different stitch, this is then squared off to create a stunning throw/blanket.  Ideal for home, camper van or picnic!!
