‘Jaali’ is Hindi for ‘Mesh’…he word has various applications including architecture, textiles, utensils etc… designed the knitted version of this shawl as a gift for my boss’ wedding…he is a very important person in my life and I wanted to make something truly special for her… decided to take the plunge and design my first shawl…nce I did that, I didn’t want the crocheter in me to be left craving…o I decided to make a crocheted version of Jaali…he construction and techniques are almost the same… even tried to find a motif that would emulate the same kind of lacy effect in the border… think I did well… can do better, but that is for another attempt…

Depending on your preferences you can work up a scarf or a shawl in triangular, trapezoidal, or full-square shape, all from the same pattern…

The 5 page pdf consists of written instructions and charts to help you work up a scarf/ shawlette/ or a full-sized shawl…
