This sophisticated shawl is wide enough to wear as a stole, but so light and soft it can easily be scrunched and wound several times around your neck or draped under the lapels of your favorite coat. The extra length adds to this accessory’s options, from a light shoulder covering in summer to a luxurious splash of warmth and color in winter.
Soft, loopy boucle stripes alternate with gossamer web-like stripes of sheer mohair. This is an easy pattern, suitable for beginners, but the yarns are a bit tricky.
Requires Size US13/9mm 40” circular needle and J10/6mm hook.
Pattern Notes: added 1-4-11
Use an alternative cast on if you want - but the reason the pattern calls for the crochet cast on and bind off is to achieve loose edges that match each other.
First and last sts of each row are treated differently to achieve a nice edge.
