The yarn I used is Sirdar Shawlie, a Sports-Weight yarn with a gentle colour gradient in shades of deep pink to a gentle burnt orange. I saw it in my local yarn store and knew immediately it would become a shawl! I purchased two balls and used one and a half balls to crochet the size I wanted (approx. 700m).
This shawl design has a wide wing-span making it very wearable. The main body is worked from the bottom up, increasing on each side until a wide triangle is formed. You can use any weight yarn to make this shawl…..it is a really versatile pattern!
Skill Level –beginner
Only basic stitches are used in this pattern, but some concentration is required until the row increases are established.

And that is it! Block your shawl and add some tassels if you wish.
Weave in all loose ends. Lay project out to finished size and pull gently into shape. Pin in place and spray lightly with water and leave to dry. You can wet block shawl if desired – check your yarn fiber instructions. Add tassels if you wish.
Make 3 tassels as follows:
Using a book approx. 6 – 8” in width, cut a 12” length of yarn and lay across top of book – this will be used to tie top of tassel. Wrap yarn around book about 40 times (depending on thickness required). Using the 12” tie, knot top of tassel tightly. Wrap another length of yarn around tassel 1” from top approx. 8 times and knot ends together. Trim if needed and sew securely to 3 corners of shawl.
