I like Stephen West’s knitted shawls and am always trying to figure out a way to translate them into crochet. For this prototype, I used a DK weight yarn and a “J” hook. It is easily adjustable to a smaller gauge, if you want to use a sock yarn. Just work the central panel until it is half the depth you want the finished object to be, then start the secondary angles. The straight sections will have more stitches, but once you get started, it’s not hard at all. This is meant to be more of a recipe, although I have written out the directions line by line for a nice sized shawlette with the DK weight yarn. There is also the option of continuing the center panel without the side angles. One other thing about the pattern, it is reversible. Either way looks nice!
