The lightweight body of this shawl is worked in a Tunisian stitch with a nonstandard return pass, and the lace inserts are worked with a standard hook. The natural curvature and the wide “wing tips” allow the shawl to stay in place without pins or clips.

HOOK Size J/10 (6 mm) Tunisian hook and G/6 (4 mm) standard hook. Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.

NOTIONS Yarn needle.

GAUGE 18 sts and 12 rows = 4” in Tunisian Bump St (tbs) with Tunisian hook.
