Notes

  • Pattern is in US crochet terms
  • Shawl starts at one end. Working in rows, increasing by 2 sts each row, on one side only, until desired size is reached.
  • Shawl will benefit from blocking lightly
  • Ch 3 at beginning of a row counts as 1dc throughout
  • Gauge is not important. To achieve a light drape tension, I suggest you use a hook one size larger than recommended for the yarn you have chosen. Make a swatch of the first 8 rows to test your hook size.
  • Shawl pictured used the same yarn for the border but a contrast yarn would also look beautiful.
